 DETROIT (AP) - Patrick Kane kept the Chicago Blackhawks' record streak alive.
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 had the only goal in a shootout. That lifted Chicago to a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.
Corey Crawford was perfect in the shootout and finished with 32 saves to help his team win a ninth straight game.
The Blackhawks (19-0-3) 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 streak from the 1977-78 season and trail only Philadelphia's run of 35 straight games with at least a point during the 1979-80 season.
It looked as if the streak of success might end when Detroit's Tomas Tatar broke a scoreless tie early in the third period and Jimmy Howard stopped every puck that came his way.
The Red Wings, though, were called for delay of game for putting the puck out of play twice toward the end of regulation.
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 the puck to Kane to set up a one-timer that made it 1-1.
BLUE JACKETS 2, AVALANCHE 1, OT
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Artem Anisimov scored on a hard wrist shot on an overtime power play, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 18 saves to lead Columbus over Colorado.
Vinny Prospal had the other goal for the Blue Jackets, thanks to Ryan O'Reilly, who inadvertently tapped it in while making his Avalanche season debut after a contract dispute.
P.A. Parenteau scored for Colorado, but also had the hooking call that led to the decisive power play for Columbus.
Anisimov, acquired in the deal last summer that sent Rick Nash to the New York Rangers, had the puck near the right circle. Teammate R.J. Umberger was backed up to the crease and goalie Semyon Varlamov was struggling to get a view. Anisimov played with the puck for a moment before firing a high, hard shot just inside the near goal post that barely missed Umberger at 2:26.
O'Reilly, last season's leading scorer for Colorado, had missed the first five weeks of the abbreviated season in a dispute that ended when the Avalanche matched an offer sheet he signed with Calgary.
HURRICANES 3, PANTHERS 2
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Jordan Staal, Alexander Semin, and Justin Faulk scored in Carolina's win over Florida, giving the Hurricanes their second victory over the Panthers in as many nights.
Dan Ellis made 19 saves for Carolina after replacing Cam Ward with 11:04 left in the second. Ward stopped all 15 shots he faced before leaving the game with what appeared to be a leg injury.
Jonathan Huberdeau scored two goals for Florida. Scott Clemmensen stopped 21 shots for the Panthers.
STARS 4, BLUES 1
DALLAS (AP) - Derek Roy had a goal and two assists and Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves to help lead Dallas over St. Louis.
Loui Eriksson, Jaromir Jagr and Erik Cole also scored for Dallas.
For Cole, it was his first goal with Dallas in his second game with the team since he was acquired in a trade with Montreal last week.
David Perron scored for St. Louis and Brian Elliott made 23 saves for the Blues.
ISLANDERS 3, SENATORS 2, SO
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - John Tavares and Frans Nielsen scored in the shootout, lifting New York Islanders over Ottawa.
Evgeni Nabokov made 29 saves as the Islanders earned their third win in 12 home games this season. He also stopped Jakob Silfverberg and Daniel Alfredsson in the shootout.
The Senators have lost three in a row.
Nielsen scored to open the shootout against backup Robin Lehner. Tavares' goal came after Nabokov made his two stops.
Michael Grabner's unassisted goal late in the third period put the Islanders up 2-1. Grabner intercepted a clearing attempted by the Senators and rifled the puck past Lehner for this eighth goal of the season at 16:31.
Defenseman Patrick Wiercioch's first career goal caromed off the stick blade of Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic and eluded Nabokov with 1:09 to go.
Brad Boyes scored a first-period goal for the Islanders, and Mika Zibanejad responded midway through the second.
