The Buffalo Sabres halted the Penguins' march toward NHL history on Tuesday, beating Pittsburgh 4-1 to snap the Pens' winning streak at 15 games.
The Penguins were closing in on their own NHL record of 17 consecutive wins, set during the 1992-93 season.
But with star Sidney Crosby sidelined after being hit in the face by a puck on Saturday, the Penguins lost for the first time since a 4-1 setback against Carolina on February 28.
Pittsburgh's 15-game streak matched the New York Islanders' run from January 21 to February 20, 1982 as the second-longest in league history.
