Blackhawks match record for opening point streak
CHICAGO – The Blackhawks beat the Vancouver Canucks, 4-3, in a shootout Tuesday to give them 16 straight games with at least one point, matching the NHL record to start a season.
Patrick Kane and Andrew Shaw scored in the shootout for the Hawks (13-0-3), who earned their third consecutive win and joined the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks as the only teams to record at least one point in the first 16 games of a season. The Ducks got off to a 12-0-4 start that year and went on to win the Stanley Cup.
The Hawks will go for the record Friday when they host the San Jose Sharks for the second time in a week. But the Hawks could be without star forward Marian Hossa after the winger had to be helped off the ice during the third period following a forearm to the back of the head from Vancouver forward Jannik Hansen.
