Blackhawks Extend Record NHL Streak With Shootout Win in Detroit

March 4 (Bloomberg) -- The Chicago Blackhawks extended their record-setting start to the National Hockey League season with a 2-1 shootout win against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Blackhawks have a 19-0-3 record and a league-leading 41 points, recording at least one point in all 22 games to surpass the previous mark of 16 to start an NHL season. The Red Wings are 10-8-4 for 24 points.

Detroit’s Tomas Tatar broke a scoreless tie with a goal two minutes, 43 seconds into the third period yesterday at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. Patrick Kane kept Chicago’s run going with a power-play goal with 2:02 left in regulation play.

After neither team could score in overtime, Pavel Datsyuk and Damien Brunner missed for the Red Wings in the shootout, and Jonathan Toews failed to score for the Blackhawks. Kane then found the net for the visitors and Corey Crawford saved Henrik Zetterberg’s attempt to give Chicago the 2-1 win.

The New York Rangers beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 in a shootout, while the Montreal Canadiens topped the Boston Bruins 4-3 to take over as the first place team in the Eastern Conference at 14-4-4. The New York Islanders sent Ottawa to a third straight loss, beating the Senators 3-2 in a shootout.
