...of the best start to a season without a regulation loss? Anaheim set the record after starting 12-0-4 in 2006-2007. Chicago is 10-0-3 and needs 3 wins to break the record. After that start that year, the Ducks ended up winning the Stanley cup.
Couldn't find the option "bring back the tie" so I went no. I think its dumb that one team can win while the other can still say they "didn't" lose. A loss is a loss.
Weren't all 3 of the Hawks losses in the shootout? I think I remember Jagr beating the Ducks 4-3 in OT during that streak, so this is more impressive. It might have been after the streak though. However, I think I remember the announcers mentioning the streak.
Eh I hope not being that the Ducks are my first team, but Hawks are my third team...so...why not? Sure they can, but it'll take a lot to actually do it. Chicago has looked beatable in their last few games.
Eh, really it is like 9 wins, 0 losses, 4 ties. I don't consider the shootout as winning or losing. The Hawks beating the Flames in the shootout is just as meaningless as losing to the Canucks in the shootout.
I don't think the Hawks break the record because Crawford is out with injury and who knows how many games he misses. Can't trust in Emery to not have a stinker within the next couple games.
And on top of that... Anaheim had shootout losses too.
I think the record is dumb both times. Its pretty much "team who has gone the longest without losing by 2+ goals". Like I said before, there should be a winner and a loser or they should call a tie. There shouldn't be a winner and a "well that was close enough".
Maybe at the next NHL awards they can hand out 700 participation ribbons so no one feels like a loser.
