(CHICAGO) — Winger Daniel Carcillo scored the go-ahead goal with 49.3 seconds left in regulation, as the Chicago Blackhawks topped the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 Wednesday. The Hawks extended their NHL-record point streak to start a season to 24 games.
The Blackhawks have now won 13 games by one goal this season.
“The best part about this streak right now is the amount of one goal games we won,” Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane said to NBC Sports Network. “Another example tonight, Carcillo with the huge goal. It’s just been a fun atmosphere.
The Avalanche (8-10-4, 20 pts) took a 2-1 lead in the second period when center Matt Duchene scored his eighth of the season.
Chicago (21-0-3, 45 pts) tied it up in the third when captain Jonathan Toews scored a shorthanded goal 2:19 into the period.
Ray Emery had 20 saves and improved his record to 9-0-0 this season.
Chicago will look to extend its streak Friday, when it heads to Denver to take on Colorado again.
