How bad is a winning streak needed?

The Sabres haven't won back-to-back games since taking three in a row from Nov. 5-11. They've played 19 games since, going 6-10-3.

I've been going over the record books and found a knock-my-socks off stat. Get this: Nineteen games without two straight wins is the longest stretch for Buffalo since the lockout and the longest since the Sabres went 23 straight without a winning streak (7-9-4-3, noting four OT losses, three ties) from Jan. 14-March 4, 2003.

"We can be happy with the way we played [in Monday's 4-2 win over Washington] but on the other hand, we have to make sure we come out the same way tomorrow [at New Jersey] and get on a little roll here," Christian Ehrhoff told me today. "It can't be that we have one good game, then we don't play the way we want to the next game."
