Pederson played 238 straight games without scoring a goal, the all-time record which Komo really had no chance of besting given his recent close calls/confidence.

Coincidentally, Pederson broke the record of a cousin of mine's, Terry Murray, who is from my hometown. Terry went 220 games without scoring a goal and held the record for many years, all at the start of his career. I once interviewed him for a magazine I was publishing on Shawville's hockey history and jokingly asked him if he remebered his first NHL goal. Not surprisingly he remembers it in detail.

Thanks for that. I'd been wondering about that exact thing.
