From Elias, on the latest comeback win, at the Garden:

"It was the sixth time since December 29 that the Islanders won a game in which they trailed by two goals or more, and five of those six wins were recorded in regulation time. No other NHL team has posted more than two two-goal comeback wins over the past 24 days."
