Last week, the Devils had their franchise-record six-game winning streak halted with a 3-2 overtime loss at Binghamton. Additionally, their regulation loss at Bridgeport Sunday ended a nine-game point streak, which tied for the longest in club history. The 2006-07 team registered points in nine-consecutive games between Mar. 3-23. This season’s nine-game run is tied for the longest in the AHL with Abbotsford’s stretch between Oct. 30 and Nov. 15.
