Report: Calgary Flames set a new NHL record for losing.

Not the kind of record you should be proud of.

The Calgary Flames set a new National Hockey League record for futility on the road on Sunday night.

According to a report from DK Sports' Seth Rorabaugh the Flames 24th consecutive loss in Anaheim against the Anaheim Ducks has surpassed a nearly twenty year old record that was previously held by the Pittsburgh Penguins, a record that took that Penguins team 7 years to achieve.

Rorabaugh reports that the Penguins had lost 23 straight games against their bitter rivals the Flyers in Philadelphia from a period beginning on February 17th in 1980 and ending on January 29th in 1987.

The Flames had tied the record, and their 4-1 loss Sunday against the ducks now leaves them alone with sole possession of that record, something the organization is most certainly not proud of.
