Laine views Selanne's 76-goal rookie record as unbreakable

Jets forward believes it will be hard for anyone to come close to mark, which is in running for Greatest NHL Moment

by Tim Campbell @TimNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer

WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine says he can't fathom how Teemu Selanne scored an NHL rookie-record 76 goals with the Jets in 1992-93.

"I think for sure that's going to be a record that no one will ever break," Laine said. "It's for sure. If you score 76 during the regular season, not even as a rookie, that would be huge. So 76 goals, that was just a lot of goals and a record nobody will ever break."

Pittsburgh concerned by 0-4-0 record this season after playing day before

by Tim Campbell @TimNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer

"They're obviously ones you don't want to make a habit of, but we've said that after each one, so we've got to find a way to change it," captain Sidney Crosby said after practice Tuesday. "You try to sit back and learn from those, but we haven't found a way to do that yet. We've got a lot of them, so we have to figure it out."
