It's not the Penguins. The Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League haven't won in 31 games, including 17 straight losses. Their record is 6-48-11-2, and their 25 points is 31 behind the Brandon and Regina for the worst total in the league!

Gotta love the Jumbotron in the Resch Center following along with the "We Want Ta-cos *clap clap clapclapclap*" chant.

I didn't know about the "pulling the goalie in overtime" rule, that's good to pull out at a party. I'd guess that the only time you would risk losing that point would be when you have to pull out every stop to get the extra point(ie.
