Following in the Footsteps of the 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins

There is something to be said about a team in search of history. The Miami Heat captivated the entire sports world with their assault on the NBA consecutive wins record. In the end it was not meant to be; the Heat’s streak ended at 27 games, a mere six games shy of the 1972-32 Los Angeles Lakers record of 33. Now our attention shifts to the Pittsburgh Penguins and their pursuit of the NHL’s record for wins in a row, which at the moment stands at 17 and is held by, you guessed it, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
