The New York Islanders were recently shut out by the Philadelphia Flyers, 7-0, at the Nassau Coliseum. It was the worst home shutout loss in Islanders history.
But this was nowhere near the worst shutout loss in NHL history. There have been some very one-sided games in NHL history and here is a look at some of the worst.
Here are the 15 biggest shutouts in the history of the league. When games were tied in margin of victory, I put them in chronological order with the older game listed lower on the list. Feel free to add any games I may have missed.
With one exception, these are regular-season games where the loser fails to score a goal and the winner goes crazy and puts lots of pucks in the net.
