Kane extended his point streak to 18 games. The 27-year-old has 10 goals and 19 assists during the streak.
Marian Hossa and Duncan Keith scored in the final 1:41 of regulation and Artem Anisimov added the overtime winner as the Chicago Blackhawks erased a 2-0 deficit to edge the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Friday night.
Patrick Kane set up Keith’s fourth of the season at 19:33 of the third period to extend his point streak to 18 games. The streak is tied for the third longest in Blackhawks history and is the longest in the NHL since the 2010-11 season.
The streak also ties Kane with Ed Olczyk and Phil Kessel for the longest point streak by an American-born player.
“I mean, you look at the players, the two guys who are part of that record, that’s some pretty elite company,” Kane told CSNChicago.com. “It’s been a fun little ride here. It seems like I’m kind of making it difficult on myself with the last few games, but it’s something you try not to think about. Play the game, and if you’re playing the right way, usually good things will happen.”
The Blackhawks improved to 11-5-2 during Kane’s streak.
The 27-year-old has 10 goals and 19 assists in his last 18 games.
