Blackhawks top Red Wings 2-1 in SO, extend streak
Mon, 04 Mar 2013 04:55:18 GMT —
The Chicago Blackhawks have extended their NHL-record, season-opening points streak to 22 games.
Patrick Kane scored the tying goal on a power play with 2:02 left in regulation and had the only goal in a shootout, lifting Chicago to a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.
Corey Crawford was perfect in the shootout and finished with 32 saves.
The Blackhawks have earned at least a point in 28 straight games - dating to a March 25, 2012 loss in regulation to Nashville - to tie the second-longest streak in league history.
Detroit's Tomas Tatar broke a scoreless tie early in the third period, but the Red Wings couldn't hold on for a win in regulation that would've ended Chicago's streak.
