Kane keeps Blackhawks streaking, scoring late in regulation and shootout of win over Red Wings

DETROIT - The Chicago Blackhawks can't be beat, in regulation at least, because they can roll four lines of forwards, play three pairs of defencemen and put one of their two good goaltenders in net.

And, they have Patrick Kane.

Kane scored with 2:02 left in the third period and had the only shootout goal, helping Chicago beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 Sunday and extend its NHL-record, season-opening points streak to 22 games.

Chicago has earned at least a point in 28 straight games — dating to a March 25, 2012, loss in regulation to Nashville — to tie the second-longest streak in league history.

The Blackhawks have matched Montreal's multi-season points run from the 1977-78 season and trail only Philadelphia's streak of 35 straight games with at least a point during the 1979-80 season.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
