To Streak or Not to Streak; That Is the Question
A streak is defined as a “zooming” or “flashing.” Our Penguins (23-8) have flashed all the way to a 10 game winning streak. Most recently, the Penguins had a 2-1 victory yesterday against those pesky Washington Capitals. Interestingly enough, many of these victories occurred without Evgeni Malkin and, most recently, Kris Letang. The Penguins will now get a well- deserved break until Friday. See the next three games for the Penguins.
Friday, March 24: Pittsburgh Penguins @ New York Islanders (13-13-3)
Sunday, March 26: Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins (13-16-1)
Tuesday, March 28: Montréal Canadians @ Pittsburgh Penguins (19-5-5)
The Penguins have winning records against all of these teams. They are 1-1 against the Islanders, 2-1 against the Flyers, and 1-0 against the Canadians. Hopefully, Malkin and Letang will return soon. Expect to see high scores in each of these games. I would not be surprised in the Flyers and Canadians games to see an over and under of 7 goals. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. As much as I hate to admit it, the streak will end at home Philadelphia.
