The Chicago Blackhawks Circus Trip ended with a roller-coaster ride. The Blackhawks had an improbable comeback win on Friday afternoon against the Anaheim Ducks. The Blackhawks scored two goals with less than two minutes to play in the third period. Artem Anisimov ended the game with an Overtime winner. The comeback also let Patrick Kane extend his point streak to 18 games tying Eddie Olczyk 1989-90 Toronto Maple Leafs and Phil Kesse 2008-09 Boston Bruins.

Sadly the next night did not yield the same results for the Blackhawks. On Saturday night the Blackhawks took on the La Kings. The Blackhawks got off to a great start against the Kings. They took a 1-0 lead in the first period on a Kane goal. The Kane goal set the record for the longest point streak by an American player. Kane also tied Denis Savard (1985-86) for the second-longest point streak in Blackhawks history. Bobby Hull has the record at 21 games in 1971-72. Niklas Hjalmarsson would make the game 2-0 in the second period. Sadly the lead would not last. The Kings would tie the game on goals from Jeff Carter and Marian Gaborik. Gaborik would net the overtime winner for the Kings. The Blackhawks finished the Circus Trip at 3-1-2. They were inches from going 4-1-1 on the Circus Trip as Jonathan Toews missed an A+ chance at the end of regulation.  Aside from Kane, Duncan Keith had an impressive Circus Trip, since his return from injury he has 4 goals and 4 assists. The Blackhawks improved their road record 5-8-1 this season. Their overall record is now 13-8-3. The Blackhawks will resume playing at the United Center on Tuesday December 1st against the Minnesota Wild.
