17 - Pittsburgh Penguins Next » 2 of 22 « Prev
The Penguins laid claim to the best regular-season record in the 1992-93 NHL season after the team won 17 straight games near the end of the year. This came after Pittsburgh won or tied its first 10 games of the season.

The streak, which spanned from March 9 to April 10 in 1993, is the longest winning streak in NHL history. Twice, the Penguins won in overtime (4-3 vs. Los Angeles on March 11 and 4-3 vs. Montreal on April 7) and Pittsburgh won a pair by scoring 10 goals (10-2 vs. Hartford on April 1 and 10-4 vs. New York Rangers on April 9).

Really, the LA Galaxy? Ties are not wins and therefore should not be includes in winning streaks. Only soccer fans would thing that this is an accomplishment. All other fans thing that this is a joke!

@Rocarolla:
So you are contending that squash should be considered more than soccer? The most played sport in the world? Awesome. And am glad that all other fans "thing" that it's a joke. I am not a soccer player, but would baseball have been played in a blizzard like the US national team did last weekend?

All of these streaks are amazing in their own right. Well done to all of them.

This wasn't a carefully researched list, interesting as it may be. Heather McKay, for example, was unbeaten in professional women's squash from 1962 until her retirement in 1981, during which time she won 16 consecutive British championships (the effective World Championships, though not named as such). That's a much, much more impressive record than Jahangir Khan's. And the longest winning streak in sporting history is usually regarded as belonging to the New York Yacht Club, which successfully defended the America's Cup against all challengers from 1857 to 1983.
