Blackhawks beat Canucks 4-3 in shootout to match NHL record for season-opening point streak

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.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
