Streakin’ Pens

The Penguins have won 12 games in a row and are 13-0-1 in their last 14 games.

That said, I think they face a stiff challenge against the Flyers tomorrow night. It's in Philly (though they're 0-2 against the Flyers in Pittsburgh and 1-0 in Philly), their play has gotten a little tired lately, and the Flyers have a solid team that's taking less penalties than they usually do. If the Flyers act like it's any time from 1970 to 2009, then the Pens win another easily. But if I had to bet, I'd say 13 is unlucky…

But congrats for the streak. It helps to build a nice cushion, and is fun to watch, but having been through two runs to the Finals in the past three years, Crosby and the Pens ((… unlike some people…)) know that the streak is pretty meaningless in the grand scheme of things.
