    The Rangers are on a streak of 9 straight. I wouldn't normally think much of it except that when it was at 8 they said that it was the Rangers' longest streak in 3 or 4 years, including the #1 team in the east year (11-12). I was pretty surprised because of how rarely it seems that Lundqvist gives up more than 2 goals in a game in the regular season. I did realize that an empty net goal can finish a streak through no fault of the defense or goalie. Does anyone know what the record for most consecutive games allowing 2 goals or fewer? If empty netters can be taken out of the equation it would be interesting too.

    I know LA had a string of 9 straight games during their stanley cup run where they gave up 2 or fewer.

    From game 5 of the Vancouver Series through game 4 of the Phoenix Series, here are the scores for reference:

    2-1
    3-1
    5-2
    4-2
    3-1
    4-2
    4-0
    2-1
    2-0 (LA lost this game 2-0 but still qualifies as the 2 and under)

    Quick gave up 3 in the 4-3 OT win in game 5 of the Phoenix Series. As for the actual record I have no idea but there's one streak for you.

    2011-12 Blues had 10 straight in Feb. 23 to Mar. 11.

    Looking through a few past dynasties, it looks like the 1975-76 Habs had 11 in a row from Feb. 22 to Mar. 14 that year.

    Thanks pnep. I'll use 17 as the standard, the others are different eras. Wasn't that Devils team that one that got McLean fired and didn't make the playoffs? I know they had a great 2nd half, but I'm surprised by that stat nonetheless.

    Yes, that stretch was after Jacques Lemaire returned to the bench.

    I can't imagine a coach being as inept as McLean was. I'm also pretty proud of the fact that the Rangers were able to beat the Devils to make the playoffs. The Devils were tough for anyone in the 2nd half.

    Ha! Look at the last 4 games. Outscore your opponents 12-5 over a 4 game span and go 1-3.

    With the 5-2 win over Ottawa, the Kings have went 18 games allowing 2 or fewer. New modern-era record according to pnep's stats.
