Another night in the National Hockey League and another streak continues.

On Friday, the Pittsburgh Penguins extended their winning streak to 11 games thanks to a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders.

Their streak matches that of the Chicago Blackhawks from earlier in the season, according to NHL.com.

The Penguins can make it 12 straight games with a win when they take on their bitter rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers, on Sunday.

Sidney Crosby continues his torrid offensive pace.

He added another two assists in the win and is now up to 52 points on the season. That total leads the league by 11 over his teammate Chris Kunitz, who scored late in the second period and now has 41 points.

We bounced back in the second and third periods,” Crosby told NHL.com.

“Sometimes you’ve got to find ways to win, and tonight we had to find a way”

The Penguins’ 11-game winning streak wasn’t quite trumped by the results in Columbus Friday.

The Blue Jackets extended their point streak to 12 games, leading to the following tweet from Adam Proteau.
