Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane will try to become the first player in five years to have a point in 20 straight games when the Blackhawks play the Minnesota Wild at United Center on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CSN-CH).
Kane's first-period goal Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings set the record for most consecutive games with a point by an American-born player at 19.
His goal, which came 11:10 into the game, broke a tie with Eddie Olczyk (Toronto Maple Leafs, 1989-90) and Phil Kessel (Boston Bruins, 2008-09), who each had points in 18 straight games. Kane later had an assist on Niklas Hjalmarsson's goal in the second period.
Kane has 11 goals and 20 assists during the streak, which began Oct. 17 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He had a goal in seven straight games from Nov. 2-15.
