(ST. LOUIS) — The Chicago Blackhawks (17-0-3) extended their NHL-record season-opening points streak to 20 games with a 3-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.
Chicago has also registered a 26 point-streak dating back to last season, which is the third longest streak in NHL history.
“I know we’re not going to go unbeaten,” Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery said in the locker room following the win.
“It’s kind of cool to be mentioned in history,” Emery continued. “But we’ve just got to continue to play well.”
The Blackhawks will play their next three out of four games at home as they look to continue the streak.
“I think we’re taking pride in playing the game that’s in front of us,” Coach Joel Quenneville said. “Everyone is challenging and pushing one another.”
