Sharks have 4 games left before facing Chicago 2/5. Chicago probably the same.
I guess we have a 1% chance of sorting it out then, would be fun to see.
I think last year Washington and Detroit played when they were both 5-0, and it was the longest into a season having a game where both teams were undefeated, so it would be a new record if CHI and SJ made it that far!
I think SJ and CHI play this weekend or next, would be sweet if both could keep the streak alive
The NHL record for most victories to start a season is 10.
The Chi - SJ game on 2/5 will be the 10th game for both teams. If they're both still undefeated at 9-0 - one team will tie the record with the possibility to set a new NHL record - Chi against Phoenix on 2/7 and SJ against Phoenix on 2/9.
Sharks play the Ducks tonight, may see the end to this thread!
Devils and Bruins are currently playing in the battle of the no regulation losses. Whoever wins will be the last remaining team in the East to get a point in every game they played so far this season (assuming it's in regulation, if not.. the streak continues for both!)
Sharks were really lucky to win tonight but win is a win and they are still in it!
Agreed. Without an EXCELLENT night by Niemi, would not have been good. But every team has off nights, nice to have your goalie bail you out. Also made me realize how valuable Dan Boyle is as well. Was out with the flu tonight. feel better Dan!!!
