Simply the Best

In the 1991, Tina Turner came out with a hit song, "Simply the Best."  She didn't know it then, but she was talking about the Pittsburgh Penguins.  After tonight's 1-0 shutout  victory over the Montreal  Canadiens, the Penguins have won 13 games in a row.   To top it off, we don't even have Evgeni Malkin in the lineup.  Wow!

Even ESPN has noticed the amazing streak.  When Barry Melrose was recently asked who the best team is in the NHL, he stated the the Penguins (26-8) have surpassed the Chicago Blackhawks (25-4-3) as the best team.  The Blackhawks are currently beating the Calgary Flames 1-0; however, they are coming off a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.  See the Barry Melrose interview below:
