CHICAGO - Patrick Kane and Andrew Shaw scored in a shootout, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 on Tuesday night to match the NHL record for season-opening point streak.

The Blackhawks (13-0-3) earned their third consecutive win to join 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.

Chicago will go for the record Friday night when it hosts the San Jose Sharks for the second time in a week.

Alexander Edler and Kevin Bieksa each scored in the final 2:42 of regulation for Vancouver.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
