October to Remember!

As the Isles continue to enjoy this really long break (they've played as many games as the Rockies have this month - 8), a couple of notes on the month:

The Isles have clinched a winning record for the second straight October (5-3-0 with 1 to play this year after going 5-4-2 last month) -- (winning meaning more points than games played). If the first time they've done it back-2-back since 2000 (4-3-2-0 on their way to a 21-win season) and 2001 (9-0-1-1). Before that, you'd have to go back to the mid 80's to find consecutive winning Octobers.

The Isles will have a winning record at the Coliseum for a fourth consecutive season --they hadn't done that since five straight winning Octobers from 1984 to 1988.

The Isles have six points in their first four home games for the fourth consecutive season. The Isles have won their first four home games twice and gone 3-0-1 three other times, but they haven't done better than six points in the first four at home since October 1984.

If the Isles can beat Carolina Saturday, they'll finish October with 6 wins -- a total reached in October only once (in 2001) since October 1992.
