NY Islanders Esoteric #2,820 or #24-08

****** Esoteric Notes ******

I think I put together a really great esoteric tonight. We'll take a look at a bunch of different stats.

Have to thank Adam over at Growing Up Islanders Blog for "taunting" me to look at the Isles versus Rangers Numbers. Check out Adam's blog at

Multiple Point Games

We had 4 players have a multi-point game tonight. For only the second time this season we had a player score 3 points. For only the third time this season we have had someone score 2 goals in a game. No Hat Tricks yet this year for the New York Islanders.

To put this all in perspective let me spell it out for you.

4 players with multi-point games equates to 1% of all the opportunities this season. 7.6% is defined as the 33 players to have multi-point games out of all the 432 possible opportunities for it to have happened so far this year. You come up with 432 possibilities by taking 18 spots per game multiplied by 24 games played. In other words, 92.4% of the time players have had a single point game or less so far this season.

Here is the break down:

3G - 0A - 3Pts

2G - 1A - 3Pts

1G - 2A - 3 Pts

2G - 0A - 2 Pts

1G - 1 A - 2 Pts
Hilbert x 4
Hunter x 3
Nielsen x 2

0G - 2 A - 2 Pts
Weight x 3
Sutton x 2
Hunter x 2
Streit x 2
