Colorado Avalanche forward Ryan O'Reilly snapped his 75 consecutive game streak - 71 this season -  without taking a penalty Saturday in the worst kind of way. 

The 23-year-old was assessed a two-minute minor midway through the third period against San Jose for playing the puck with a broken stick. 

O'Reilly last recorded a penalty March 10, 2013 - ironically enough against the Sharks - and has amassed just 52 PIM in 337 career games. 

Entering Saturday's game, 26 NHL goalies had more penalty minutes this season.
