Last night of course was Patrick Kane’s night on a peculiar way to get an assist which kind of goes with the flow of this generation of Blackhawks. Kane swatted a puck to Artemi Panarin and he deposited into an empty net and the consecutive point streak was all Patrick Kane’s.
It’s not a record that is as important as say Stanley Cup Championships, but with winter coming it’s a pretty cool stat and something to get excited about since again it was someone from this generation knocking down a record from the Mikita/Hull era

This brings us to what could be the next record that could be broken by this generation of Chicago Blackhawks. Let’s be honest this could have been broken last year if it wasn’t for Patrick Kane falling into the boards and breaking his clavicle.
Patrick Kane is the early favorite to become the first Chicago Blackhawks since 1968 to win the NHL Hart Trophy for MVP. The Chicago Blackhawks Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita won it four times from 1965-68 but nobody in a Chicago Blackhawks uniform has one it since. Will Kane win it? If current history has anything to say about it the answer has to be yes.
What record is your favorite that has been broken so far?
