Kane, who had a goal and two assists in the game, now has a point in 16 consecutive games, the longest active point streak in the NHL. Kane also has an assist in 15 straight games, which set a new Blackhawks record.
Kane’s assist on Drake Caggiula’s goal in the second period moved him past the 14-game streak that Blackhawks legend Stan Mikita put together during the 1967 season.
Mikita’s daughter texted Blackhawks broadcaster Troy Murray during the game to ask him to congratulate Kane on the remarkable achievement, according to the Blackhawks’ Twitter feed.
Kane will look to continue his point streak on Saturday night when the Blackhawks take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at the United Center. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
