Sidney Crosby 'really impressed' with Patrick Kane's point streak

BOSTON -- A day after Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane's 26-game point streak was snapped in a 3-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche, players around the league were still talking about the accomplishment.

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."

Entering Wednesday's action, Kane leads the league with 46 points. The Dallas Stars' Tyler Seguin has 42 points, and teammate Jaime Benn has 41. A season ago, no one surpassed 100 points, but those players are on pace to reach that mark this season.

"You always like to look up to someone, and when you see Kane playing the way he is, and dangles the way he is, you want to be just like him," Boston Bruins forward David Krejci said. "It would be nice for him to break 100. Last year, no one broke 100, so it would be nice for someone to do it, and he's on a pretty good pace. If someone's going to do it, I would put my money on him."

Crosby concurred.

"Yeah, it would be nice for somebody to get there," he said. "It's not easy to get points, but it looks like some of those guys are definitely in the running to get there. It would be nice to see 100."
