The Penguins are coming off a 4-3 shootout win against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, their closest game of the streak. The Penguins have won four consecutive games against the Sabres, outscoring them 17-2 in that stretch. That includes a 5-0 win Nov. 1 in Pittsburgh.
"Our special teams have been very good," Penguins coach Mike Johnston said. "If you look at the last six or seven games our special teams have been good. We got out of the gate, got some confidence early, which is very important as you know. If you look around the League, if you come out of the gate well you tend to get that confidence that you need. Those are a couple of the factors. And then now we're getting secondary scoring. We were searching for that early and we've started to get secondary scoring."
