When the Chicago Blackhawks ripped off 24 games without a regulation loss to start the season, it included an 11-game winning streak. The Blackhawks fell six short of the NHL record set by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1992-93.
Nearly three weeks after that streak came to a close, the modern-day Penguins are taking an even stronger run at the 17-game mark set by their predecessors.
Trailing 1-0 entering the third period against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night, Sidney Crosby tied the game with a power-play goal and Tyler Kennedy won it in overtime to give the Penguins their 12th win in a row. The Penguins now trail the Blackhawks by just one point in the race for the Presidents' Trophy, although Chicago has played three fewer games.
