Pittsburgh Penguins: 6-Game Losing Streak by the Numbers

The Penguins have lost six straight. They can't score. Players are dropping left and right.

The only thing that's gone their way over the last two weeks is that James Neal's injury isn't as bad as initially thought.

Never mind seeing someone return from IR.

The latest loss, a 1-0 shutout at the hands of the middling Washington Capitals, proved that even when the Penguins hold an opponent to a single goal, their opponents can probably hold the Pens to none.

At times, the effort wasn't there. When there was effort, there was no execution. And the bad luck has come in waves.

Phantom penalties have been assessed. Calls have been blown (are you kidding me, Milan Michalek's skate?). Nothing is going right for this team. Such is the nature of an NHL season.

How bad is it? The Penguins haven't suffered such a losing streak since Sidney Crosby's rookie season (2005-06), when they dropped 10 straight.

Unless these numbers change in a hurry, the Pens might find themselves approaching that mark once again.
