Hossa gets 1,000th point; Blackhawks top Senators

Chris Stevenson  - NHL.com Correspondent | Friday, 10.31.2014 / 12:31 AM

OTTAWA -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa said he wanted to reach his milestone here, where his NHL career started.

Then he went out and made it happen.

Hossa became the 80th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 points with a goal and an assist Thursday, helping the Blackhawks to a 5-4 shootout win against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre.

It looked like Hossa had written a truly memorable story when he got that 1,000th point on his second goal of the season with 6:10 left in the third period to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 lead.

But Ottawa center Mika Zibanejad scored his first goal of the season to tie the game 4-4 with 2:08 left in the third.

After the Senators killed a penalty in overtime, Patrick Sharp won it for the Blackhawks with the only goal of the shootout, beating Senators goaltender Craig Anderson with a forehand to the glove side.

Hossa played the first seven seasons of his NHL career for Ottawa. The Senators selected him in the first round (No. 12) of the 1997 NHL Draft.

The 35-year-old has 466 goals and 534 assists in 1,100 NHL games over 17 seasons.

"It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started," Hossa said. "It means lots to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career."

While the ice was being prepared for overtime, it was announced that Hossa had reached 1,000 points. The crowd came to its feet and gave him a warm ovation.

Hossa said he was touched by the applause and that the feeling went both ways. He stood up and waved.

"I had a great seven years and the people were really nice to me during the time I was here," he said. "That was so nice from them when I received the thanks, so I just stood on my feet and thanked them back. Lots of things went through my head when I was here in Ottawa when I started. It was a great moment."

The Senators tied the game when Zibanejad took a pass from Alex Chiasson in the slot and his shot went by Chicago defenseman Johnny Oduya, who fell to the ice to try to block it, and through the legs of Chicago goaltender Scott Darling.

The goal was scored 4:02 after Hossa gave Chicago a 4-3 lead. His 999th point was an assist on the first of two goals by Chicago captain Jonathan Toews.

Toews' second tied the game 3-3 at 7:31 of the third period.

He scored each of his goals from the Ottawa crease. His last was scored after a shot by Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook bounced off Anderson and behind the goaltender. Toews beat the check of Ottawa defenseman Jared Cowen to knock in his fourth goal of the season.

Bobby Ryan put the Senators ahead 3-2, 30 seconds into the third period on a turnover by Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell in front of his net.

"We certainly showed some resiliency to get to that point (shootout), coming back [twice] throughout the game," Ryan said. "You almost feel you earned [a win], but when it comes down to a shootout they found a way to get one by [Anderson].

"They played a heck of a game. Their goalie stood on his head sometimes. It was still a gutsy effort and I think we're all pretty proud of that."

Zibanejad said, "It would be nice if we could get away with two points, but I think we battled hard back and got that point, so it was good."

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Hossa's 1,000 points are remarkable considering the forward's commitment to defense.

"It's a special accomplishment. It shows you've been consistently productive in your career," Quenneville said. "He does it not just production-wise offensively. He does it by playing on both sides of the puck, which makes that thousand number pretty impressive. What a beneficiary as a coaching staff knowing that he represents how you want to play. He's a professional as good as you can explain what is the definition of being a good pro."

Darling started his third game in the NHL and made 28 saves. He was backed up by Corey Crawford, who returned after missing five games because of injury. Goaltender Antti Raanta was scratched.

Quenneville said Crawford would likely start Saturday at the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki did not play after he was injured against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Patrick Wiercioch replaced him in the lineup.

Anderson, who made 35 saves, was backed up by Andrew Hammond, who was called up from the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League on Thursday on an emergency basis. Senators goaltender Robin Lehner missed the game to be with his wife when she gave birth to their first child Thursday, a son.

The Senators' next game is Saturday at the Boston Bruins.
