Hossa scores in OT as Blackhawks extend points streak to 19 games with 3-2 win over Oilers

CHICAGO - Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Monday night to stretch their NHL-record opening points streak to 19 games.

Patrick Sharp set up the winning goal with a quick turn along the boards and a drive to the goal that led to two stops by Nikolai Khabibulin. Hossa picked up the second rebound and was stuffed by Khabibulin again before he poked it in for his ninth goal of the season.

Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg also scored for Chicago (16-0-3), which has won six straight and nine of 10.

Nail Yakupov and Jeff Petry had the goals for Edmonton, which had won three straight against the Blackhawks.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
