POST GAME STATS 411

Your stop for quick stats on the Islanders the morning after each game.

 
STANDINGS: With last night's 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers, the Islanders move to within three points of the Atlantic-leading Blueshirts with four games in hand. With a record of 11-6-0 for 22 points in 17 games, the Islanders are just a point behind the Philadelphia Flyers who have played in two more contests.

With the Islanders having played in a league-low 17 games, they sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with their 22 points.



SPECIAL TEAMS: The Islanders power play ranks tied for tenth in the NHL with a 21.6 percent conversion rate. On the road, the team has been scoring at a 25.8 percent clip, which is fifth best in the NHL. At home, the power play is currently scoring at 16.7 percent

The penalty kill now ranks fifth in the NHL as they have been negating 86.5 percent of their opponents power plays. On the road, the Islanders defend off 89.2 percent on opposing power plays.

Last night versus the Rangers, the Islanders' power play went 1-for-6 with Ruslan Fedotenko scoring on the man advantage, while the penalty kill went 5-5.


RICK'S WINS:  Rick DiPietro recorded his 100th NHL victory in goal last night versus the Rangers. He ranks fourth all-time in franchise history with his 100 wins and is now six behind third place Kelly Hrudey. Billy Smith is on top of that list with 304 career victories as an Islander.


JO'S BIG SHOT:  By scoring four goals in the last five games, Josef Vasicek now leads the Islanders' scoring attacked with eight goals. What's more impressive is that he's netted those goals by only taking 22 shots. Last night against the Rangers, he scored his game-winning goal on one of his three shots in the game. That gives the first-year Islander a NHL-best 36.4 shooting percentage. 


JoVa PART II:  Josef Vasicek has now scored eight goals on the season through 17 games. Last season in 63 games between Carolina and Nashville, the two-way forward only scored six goals.  Jo's career-high in goals is 19, which he set in 2003-04 with Carolina. 


JoVa PART III:  Josef Vasicek has scored two short-handed on the season so far, which are not only both the Islanders as a team have scored this season, but the only two he has scored in his seven-year NHL career.  


GETTING IN THE WAY: Brendan Witt leads the team and is fifth in the NHL in blocked shots with 53. Last night against the Rangers, Witt blocked a game-high six shots. Last season, he finished fifth the league with a total of 207.


I'LL TAKE IT: Mike Sillinger once again leads the Islanders with a 55.1 faceoff winning percentage. He also ranks fifth in the NHL by taking 34.4 percent of the Islanders faceoffs. Last season, Sillinger ranked fourth in the NHL with a 58.8 faceoff winning percentage.
