CHICAGO -- Ray Emery has his own streak going at United Center at the same time the Chicago Blackhawks are in position to tie the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks for the NHL record of 16 consecutive games to start a season without a regulation loss.
Since coming to Chicago in 2011-12, Emery has yet to lose a game in regulation at United Center – he's 11-0-3 in the building as a Blackhawks goalie after backstopping a 3-2 win Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings.
What's his secret?
"The team that's in front of [me]," said Emery, who will face the Vancouver Canucks at home Tuesday after stopping 25 of 27 shots on against the Kings on Sunday. "It's a pretty good squad. You always want to play well at home. It's probably a bit of luck that it's turned out that way, but with a team like this … some nights it's hard to lose with a group like that."
