Detroit • Patrick Kane had a couple shots that simply could not be stopped.
Just like the Chicago Blackhawks.
Chicago extended its NHL-record season-opening points streak to 22 games Sunday when Kane scored the tying goal on a power play with 2:02 left in regulation, and the Blackhawks earned an extra point when the star forward scored the only goal in a shootout of a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.
"Just amazing what's going on," Kane said.
Corey Crawford was perfect in the shootout and finished with 32 saves to help Chicago win a ninth straight game.
The Blackhawks have 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. They 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.
