Pittsburgh Penguins, (AFP) – Sidney Crosby point streak ended at 25 games after failing to score a point in the loss of the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 in a shootout against the New York Islanders.

Until it came against the Islanders, Crosby had recorded a point in every game since the Penguins on Nov. 3.

He produced 26 goals and 24 assists during that period. It marked the longest string of points in the National Hockey League Quebec since Mats Sundin had a background of 30 games during the regular 1992-93 season.

Crosby also scored a goal in five straight games before being held off the scoresheet by New York.

Crosby does not usually difficult to score on the Islanders – he has more career points (62 in 33 games) against New York than any other team in the league.

Crosby had a scoring chance in the shootout, but was stopped by goaltender Rick DiPietro Islanders.
