On the same night Jarome Iginla made his Penguins debut, the NHL's hottest team suffered a significant loss. No, it wasn't their win streak -- which is now at 15 games -- but their star player, Sidney Crosby. The league's leading scorer took a puck to the jaw and is out indefinitely after surgery. How much will his absence hurt the Penguins? And does it mean the end of their pursuit of the win streak record?
A Pyrrhic victory?
The Penguins picked up their 15th straight win Saturday but lost their star center indefinitely.
