A record? No, not quite

Initial reporting around the league had the Pittsburgh Penguins going for a NHL record 8-0 road start tonight. If you look at the official NHL record book, that’s what you’ll find. Turns out, someone forgot to update the record book. The league somehow missed Buffalo’s 10-0 road start three years ago. Oops… So the best the Penguins could do tonight is claim the second-best all-time road start. New Jersey is also 7-0 on the road this season but doesn’t play another road game until Saturday.

Best road starts
