Five NHL questions: We going streaking?

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

A daily feature that asks the five biggest questions about today's NHL action. Will they be answered? (That doesn't count as one of the five questions.)

1. How many teams will end the night with winning streaks still intact?

The Colorado Avalanche, Phoenix Coyotes and Pittsburgh Penguins all carry multi-game winning streaks into competition on Wednesday night. Colorado has been one of the most surprising teams in the NHL this season and have won all but one game this season. They have won their last six and will look to extend it to seven against the Nashville Predators.

Pittsburgh is dominating the Metropolitan Division, which is proving to be the weakest grouping in the NHL this season. The Penguins carry a four-game winning streak into their game against the New York Rangers.

The Coyotes have a five-game winning streak that is all the more impressive considering the team has registered points in 12 of their last 13 games. They'll look to extend that run against the Anaheim Ducks.

2. Can the Winnipeg Jets rebound from their loss against Chicago?

These two teams met on Saturday evening and the Blackhawks took it to the Jets, 5-1. The two squads clash again on Wednesday night and the Jets will attempt to register a more competitive effort.

3. Can the Predators record at least one point against the Avalanche?

Nashville is embarking on a historic road trip that will span seven games and 17 days, which is the longest road trip in franchise history. Through two games, the club has registered three points. Can they keep that pace up against the red hot Avalanche?

4. Will the Coyotes go to a fourth straight shootout?

Phoenix is finding a lot of success and, recently, it's come through the shootout. The club has needed the skills competition to end their last three games. Will Wednesday night mark a fourth?

5. Will Sidney Crosby extend his point streak?

Big surprise, Crosby is leading the league in points with 23. In total, he has gone only two games without recording a point this season and is currently on a four-game streak where he has accumulated five points (all assists). He will look to extend that to five games against the Rangers.
