Losing Streaks

The New York Islanders are scheduled to face the San Jose Sharks tonight at HP Pavilion in San Jose. Currently sitting at 4th in the Atlantic Division, the Islanders come into the game on an 8 game losing streak and have really struggled to score goals of late. The Sharks have underperformed so far this season, but Captain Joe Thornton looks to spark his team tonight when he returns from his two game suspension. New York’s losing streak is its worst since they dropped seven in a row last season from Jan. 23 to Feb. 6.

 

In this light, we took a look at some of the worst losing streaks in NHL history. Topping out the list is a defunct team (go figure) named the Winnipeg Jets. In the 1980-1981 season, after recording its first win on the third game of the season, the Jets rattled off 30 games without recording a win. Over that 30 game span, the Jets went 0-23-7. The Jets would finish the season a miserable 9-57-14. Believe it or not, 9-57-14 is not the worst record posted in NHL history. In its inaugural season, the Washington Capitals finished dead last in the NHL with a record of 8-67-5. During that Capitals season, the team’s longest losing streak was 17 games, but they recorded two separate 17 game losing streaks that season. For New York’s sake, let’s hope the Islanders get a win tonight...
