Blackhawks’ Kane scores in 19th straight game, sets record
LOS ANGELES — Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane has a point in his 19th consecutive game to set a new NHL record for the longest points streak by a U.S.-born player.
Kane scored a power-play goal midway through the first period of the Blackhawks’ road trip finale against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.
Kane’s 14th goal of the season broke his three-way tie with Eddie Olczyk and Phil Kessel, who both had 18-game scoring streaks. The streak is the longest of Kane’s career and the second-longest in Blackhawks history, tying a streak by Denis Savard 30 years ago.
Kane has 11 goals and 19 assists during the streak that began Oct. 17. The longest streak in Chicago history was Bobby Hull’s 21-game string during the 1971-72 season.
