The next time the Pens have a chance to go for their 16th win, it will be much, much more important.
The winning streak was gonna end. That was pretty much a given. The only question was how exactly it was gonna end. When Chicago's points streak ended, it went down in flames against Colorado. For anyone who still wants to have a streak boner, the Pens have won 14 straight games with Crosby in the lineup, and MAF still has a streak, so there's that.

is sabres captain Jason Pominville on the way to Minnesota?
It seems like such a cliché to start something about Jason Pominville with Game 5 of the Ottawa series in the 2006 playoffs. But really where else can something about Jason Pominville begin? There are very few people in Buffalo who can’t vividly recall Pominville skating around Daniel Alfredsson, Jay McKee flying out of the penalty box, and Rick Jeanneret bellowing his now...
