+

With a 5-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night, the New Jersey Devils became the 61st team in NHL history to win at least 10 straight games in a single season. Naturally, the question is starting the get asked: with eight wins between them and the all-time record, can the Devils keep up this torrid pace? The 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins currently hold the record for the most consecutive games won in a regular season with 17. That team was coming off its second straight Stanley Cup and included the likes of Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr and Ron Francis. In the years since the Penguins went on that tear, only a couple of teams have come close to touching that record. The 2012-13 Penguins hit 15 wins before taking a loss The 2016-17 Columbus Blue Jackets got all the way to 16 consecutive wins before having its streak snapped.
