March 6 (Bloomberg) -- Bryan Bickell scored two goals 3 1/2 minutes apart to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 5-3 and extend their National Hockey League season-opening point streak to 23 games.

The Blackhawks (20-0-3), who have earned at least one point in each of their games this season, lead the league with 43 points. The Wild (11-9-2) have 24 points.

Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa joined Bickell in first-period scoring to give the Blackhawks a 4-1 lead last night on their home ice at the United Center. Devin Setoguchi had given the Wild a 1-0 lead.

Ryan Suter had a power-play goal early in the third period and Kyle Brodziak added another score to pull Minnesota within 4-3 before Patrick Kane sealed the victory for the Blackhawks with his 12th goal of the season.
