Blackhawks make it 22 games without a regulation loss this season.
The Chicago Blackhawks were made to come from behind against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday, with their 2-1 shoot-out win making it 22 games without a loss in regulation.
Patrick Kane was the hero at the Joe Louis Arena, having scored the tying goal with just 2:02 remaining in regulation before scoring in the shoot-out to give the NHL pace-setters the win.
The Blackhawks are now 19-0-3 in a shortened 48-game season, and once again they demonstrated the determination that has seen them continue to extend their record streak.
It was also a ninth consecutive victory, which tied a franchise record set in the 2008/09 season, and came in a hostile environment away at their rivals from Detroit.
Hawks’ coach Joel Quenneville was unsurprisingly delighted with his men after the game, and will be hoping that they can overcome an exhausting schedule which will see them play seven games in 11 days to continue their winning ways.
