Chicago Blackhawks Sunday Rewind Looks Back at Chicago Blackhawks highlights, and Today we feature Patrick Kane‘s 26 Game Point Streak
One of the things that made Patrick Kane‘s season even that more special was the point streak that he had during the beginning of the season.
Kane’s streak started innocently enough on October 17th against the Columbus Blue Jackets when he scored an empty net goal in the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 victory. Kane was off to a hot start but no one could have imagined the ride he was about to take Hawks fans on for the much of the first half of the season.
Patrick Kane would pick up a point in 26 straight games, and it wasn’t just like he was picking up one point a game. During the streak he scored 16 times and collected 26 assists all of which moved Patrick Kane to the top of the NHL scoring lead which he didn’t relinquish the rest of the year ending the season with 106 points which was 18 points more than 2nd place Jamie Benn.
The streak ended up being the longest ever by a U.S. Born player, and the longest ever by a Chicago Blackhawks player which was held by Bobby Hull. The funny part about the streak when you go back and look at it was how happy Kane’s linemate Artemi Panarin was every time that Kane was able to pick up a point and extend his point streak.
