A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

NHL

• The Penguins overcame a 4-0 deficit to snap a nine-game winless streak and record their first victory of the season with a 7-5 win over the Thrashers on Thursday night. They became the first team in NHL history to snap a single-season winless streak of seven or more games by overcoming a deficit of four or more goals.

Atlanta became the first team in NHL history to fail to win a game in which it built a 4-0 lead (or better) during the first 10 minutes of the opening period.
