Forward Patrick Kane tied the Chicago Blackhawks record by extending his point streak to 21 games with a power-play goal 3:27 into the second period of a 4-3 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday.

He tied the record established by Bobby Hull from Dec. 5 to Jan. 23 during the 1971-72 season.

"It's one of those things I'm not too worried about when I'm playing the game," Kane said. "I guess when you're tied for anything with Bobby Hull, it's pretty special considering the career that guy had."

CALGARY -- Calgary Flames goaltending prospect Jon Gillies is expected to miss 4-6 months following hip surgery, the Flames said Thursday.

"Obviously, it's never ideal that he's going to be missing the time that he's going to be missing," Flames general manager Brad Treliving said. "For all intents and purposes, he'll miss the remainder of the season. It needs to be done. We don't anticipate any problems. The majority of his rehab will be done here in Calgary, so our people will have their hands on them and we don't expect any issues."

Gillies will have the surgery next Wednesday in Nashville.
