"Every winning streak will have to end sometime."

On Sunday, Tony Stewart's sweep of all three of the Speed Week Nextel Cup races was brought to an end when he ran into the wall fairly late in the Daytona 500. He won the Bud Shootout last Sat. and his Duel 150 on Thursday. Tony has won almost every other race at Daytona, but the big one. And he had a good chance to do it on Sun. He even came back from stalling in his pit and a speeding penalty to make it back to the front of the pack with a very strong car. There's always next year Tony! And based on his performance over the weekend, I am excited to see how the whole year shakes out.

On Monday, it was the Penguins 16 game point streak that ended in a very frustrating loss to the NY Islanders. Over the last few games, and based on Michel Therrien's comments, I think that most people felt the streak would have ended sooner. I am just glad that they made up as many points as they were able to in the streak. Now I think they can regroup and come out swinging for the last part of the regular season. Fleury was a huge part of their streak, but as Therrien pointed out, he has given up a lot of goals in the last few games, taking several of them to overtime and shootout. Hopefully now he can jump up and get right back to being a brick wall in goal. I still have faith in the Flower!
