As usual, Penguins make their points against Edmonton

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Penguins are going to lose a game to Edmonton in regulation someday.

Really, there's no good reason to think that they won't.

After all, it's happened before.

Just not recently enough that most people alive today remember it.

Forensic statisticians sifting through the fossil record have concluded that their most recent 60-minute defeat by the Oilers took place on approximately Jan. 10, 2006. (No, not B.C.)

The Penguins are 15-0-4 against Edmonton since then, including a 5-2 victory at Rogers Place Friday night. It is the longest streak of getting at least one point from an opponent in franchise history and includes an 8-0-2 run in Edmonton, where their last regulation loss came on Dec.
