Sabres vs. Penguins: Pittsburgh's winning streak ends at 15

Justin K. Aller

The lowly Buffalo Sabres finally ended the Penguins' incredible streak.

It had to end some time...though the way it ended was a bit of a surprise.

The Pittsburgh Penguins had their 15-game winning streak snapped by the Buffalo Sabres -- a team which entered the night in fourteenth place in the Eastern conference.

Jarome Iginla scored his first goal as a Penguin, but that was all the offense the team could muster. The Sabres put four past Tomas Vokoun, who was pulled in favor of Marc-Andre Fleury.

The Penguins went undefeated throughout the entire month of March, winning all of their fifteen games and vaulting into second place in the entire NHL. After recently losing their captain and the league's leading scorer Sidney Crosby to injury, however, it has to be expected that their offense would suffer.

Congratulations, Buffalo Sabres! You made it into the news for a positive reason for the first time since...uhhh...

I'll get back to you on that.
