All good things eventually come to an end. In the case of the Pittsburgh Penguins, their winning streak failed to reach 16 games as the Buffalo Sabres won at home by a score of 4-1.
Now that their streak is officially a thing of the past, it's time to look back and marvel at what the Penguins were able to accomplish.
Hockey analysts and fans will surely debate which streak in 2013 was more impressive, Pittsburgh's 15-game win streak or Chicago's 24-game point streak. That's a debate that really has no right answer, but let's stop for a second and give Pittsburgh the credit they deserve.
The Penguins lost on February 28th to Carolina by a score of 4-1. Following that defeat, the Penguins rattled off 15 consecutive victories before falling on April 2nd to the Sabres by an identical score of 4-1. Between the two losses, the Penguins won every single game during the month of March. Of these 15 victories, five came on the road while 10 were in front of their home crowd.
