The Penguins entered Saturday's game against Calgary with a few streaks going.
They had won six in a row, nine straight at home.
Sid had a nine game point streak.
Knitting Lady and I had our own 18-game regular season winning streak on the line.
Luckily the Pens played well enough to get the win and keep the streaks alive (though Ottawa would ruin that a few days later).
This one presented a great chance for us to see all the new guys who are getting their shot due to injuries and suspensions.
This would be our first chance to see guys like Dumoulin, Sill and Samuelsson at the NHL level.
And it would be our first look at Zolnierczyk and Conner since they joined (or returned to) the team.
It would also provide a good 1-game tryout for the Canon SL1 that KL got me for Christmas.
So there was plenty to be excited about. Check out our photos after the jump.
