Blackhawks top Red Wings 2-1 in SO, extend streak
CHICAGO 2, DETROIT 1 (OT)

By LARRY LAGE
AP Hockey Writer

DETROIT (AP) -- Patrick Kane had a couple shots that simply could
not be stopped.



Just like the Chicago Blackhawks.



Chicago extended its NHL-record season-opening points streak to
22 games Sunday when Kane scored the tying goal on a power play
with 2:02 left in regulation and the Blackhawks earned an extra
point when the star forward scored the only goal in a shootout
of a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.



"Just amazing what's going on," Kane said.



Corey Crawford was perfect in the shootout and finished with 32
saves to help Chicago win a ninth straight game.



"He had several big saves, particularly right after they scored
to go up one," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "He kept
us in there to make it a one-goal game and gave us a chance."



The Blackhawks have earned at least a point in 28 straight games
- dating to a March 25, 2012 loss in regulation to Nashville -
to tie the second-longest streak in league history. They've
matched Montreal's multi-season points run from the 1977-78
season and trail only Philadelphia's streak of 35 straight games
with at least a point during the 1979-80 season.



"It's impressive," Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard acknowledged
after making 32 saves. "They're finding different ways to do it
every single night."



It looked like Chicago's sensational streak of success might end
when Detroit's Tomas Tatar broke a scoreless tie early in the
third period and Howard stopped every puck that came his way.



Kane and Crawford had other ideas.



"We keep finding a way to keep ourselves in the game or win it
at the end," Kane said.



The Red Wings hurt their chances by getting called for delay of
game twice toward the end of regulation for putting the puck out
of play.



Chicago took advantage of the first of two late power plays with
forward Viktor Stalberg getting more of the puck than Detroit
defenseman Kyle Quincey did, pushing it to Kane to set up a
one-timer that made it 1-1.



Kane scored from the bottom of the right circle and pivoted
toward the crowd, shouting with joy as he pumped his gloves
toward the banner-filled rafters.



"He knew the importance of it to get us to overtime,"
Quenneville said.



With a sold-out crowd on its feet for a shootout at the end of
an entertaining afternoon of hockey, Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk was
denied on a low attempt by Crawford's pads on the first attempt.
Jonathan Toews then went high and couldn't get a shot past
Howard's glove.



Red Wings rookie Damien Brunner made some nifty moves next, but
couldn't keep the puck and for that, Crawford looked thankful as
the two met face to face on the ice.



Kane then stole the show, slowly skating toward Howard and
lifting his right skate off the ice twice before flipping a
wrist shot past him to make the fans at Joe Louis Arena sigh.



"He's got great skill," Howard said.



On Detroit's third attempt in the heart-pounding shootout,
Henrik Zetterberg couldn't extend the game.



"I don't think we were close to perfect and we almost beat them
anyway," Zetterberg said.



The Red Wings had chances to win in regulation, and in overtime,
but Crawford was effective in his return to the net.



Crawford slid to his left to get a piece of Johan Franzen's shot
with 1:40 left in overtime, and the two talked about the play
during the subsequent break.



Both teams were inches away from scoring in the final seconds of
overtime, with Detroit's Brendan Smith just missing an
opportunity to the left of the net and Kane's shot squirting
past Howard before it trickled just to right of the other net.



The Blackhawks dominated the first period, but Howard - and his
teammates - prevented them from scoring on two power plays. The
second period was evenly played, then Detroit finally got a shot
past Crawford at 2:43 of the third.



Patrick Eaves got to a loose puck behind Chicago's net, pushed
it to Joakim Andersson, whose sharp pass set up Tatar perfectly
on the side of the net to beat Crawford.



A bit later, Crawford made a spectacular glove save to deny
Datsyuk's chance that could've given the Red Wings a two-goal
lead - and perhaps the win in regulation.



Quenneville gave Crawford the start in Detroit after he left his
last game Thursday night in St. Louis with an upper-body injury
that Quenneville insisted isn't the same one that forced the
goaltender off the ice earlier in the season.



Crawford didn't get much work early, making just three saves in
the first period. He stopped 12 shots in the second - as did
Howard - in a fast-pace game filled with end-to-end action and
few whistles.



"It was a fun game," Zetterberg said. "Fans were really into it
from the start. These are the games you're looking forward to
play. Unfortunately we couldn't come up with the win."



NOTES: The previous record for season-opening points streak was
16 set by the Anaheim Ducks during the 2006-07 season. ...
Chicago plans to have F Dave Bolland (upper-body injury) back in
the lineup Tuesday at home against Minnesota. ... Detroit hopes
F Valtteri Filppula, out with shoulder injury, can return by
next weekend. ... Blackhawks F Marian Hossa, a former Red Wing,
played in his 1,000th NHL game, a milestone that was recognized
by the public address announcer amid a chorus of boos.
