With less than two minutes remaining in regulation and the Blackhawks ahead 2-1, Patrick Kane had an assist to establish a Blackhawks record with a point in 22 consecutive games (13-23—36). He bested the previous mark set by Bobby Hull, who was at United Center on Sunday, from Dec. 5, 1971 to Jan. 23, 1972 (23-12—35 in 21 GP). Kane set the new record 44 years and one day after Hull began his run.

"It's not your usual point, I guess, but I think the exciting part was just how into it the crowd was when the announcement was made [about the record], and hearing how excited they were. [Hull] obviously had a tremendous career and scored a lot of goals. Anytime you can put your name with Bobby Hull or Denis Savard or Eddie Olczyk, you've got to be doing something right." – Patrick Kane

"I just hope he breaks the record and then goes on and chases [Wayne] Gretzky. It's only 30 [more games]. It's not a big deal. He can get 30 more, I'm sure." – Bobby Hull

CHICAGO -- It didn't happen with a no-look pass or precision shot, but Patrick Kane's assist after his hand pass from the defensive zone still helped him break Bobby Hull's 44-year old Chicago Blackhawks point streak record at United Center on Sunday.

After swatting the puck out of mid-air to rookie left wing Artemi Panarin, Kane watched the skilled Russian pull the puck around Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tyler Myers and shoot it into an empty net from the neutral zone to seal the Blackhawks' 3-1 win.

The goal extended Kane's point streak to 22 games, which broke Hull's mark of 21 straight established Dec. 5 to Jan. 23 during the 1971-72 season.

Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk has a mild groin strain and will not play Monday against the Colorado Avalanche, coach Mike Yeo said Sunday.

However, Yeo said Dubnyk could return either Friday at the Arizona Coyotes or Saturday at the San Jose Sharks.

"Next weekend is a possibility," Yeo told the Wild website. "Where we're at in the season, we won't put him in the net if he's at risk of hurting himself and being out longer. Probably pretty good timing with the week that we have right now. We'll see if [Dubnyk] is ready for practice when we get back [from Colorado]."

"This last month was like old times being down there [in the AHL], and starting and finding way to get back up here. I think with the month and a half or month I was there, it got me playing time, it got me playing [how] I'm capable of ... I'm just happy to be in the lineup tonight."
