Kids today are easily impressed

Sidney Crosby is "really impressed" with Patrick Kane's point streak.

Kane had a 26-game point streak broken last week, and the whole hockey work was impressed by it (with the possible exception of one tiny Gaulish village...), and rightfully so.

Even though 51 games is the NHL record (set, of course, by Wayne Gretzky with the Edmonton Oilers), 26 is nothing to snooze at especially in the dead puck era.

Since the 1992-1993 season (Mats Sundin, 30 games) no player has gotten a point in 28 games or longer. The closest was, of course, Cindy Crosby himself...

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby knows all about point streaks. He produced a 25-game point streak during the 2010-2011 season, and he said he was impressed with Kane's performance this season.

"It's not easy to keep putting those games together," Crosby said. "You could see there toward the end, you're just finding ways and ride that wave as long as you can. What he was able to do with that consistency is not easy, so really impressed with him being able to do that. You need some bounces along the way, but it's pretty tough to do that."
That being said, 2015-2016 Crosby should be rightfully impressed by Kane's point streak. Come to think of it though, Crosby should also be impressed by...
