Blackhawks make history in NHL

23 February 2013 07:07

The Chicago Blackhawks moved further clear on top of the NHL's Eastern Conference on Friday, and claimed a little slice of history.

The Blackhawks had to come from behind to defeat the San Jose Sharks 2-1, and in doing so became the first team in league history to score in each of their first 17 games of the season.

Chicago moved to a 14-0-3 record for the season and are six points clear of the Anaheim Ducks on top of the Eastern Conference standings.

Patrick Marleau scored first for the Sharks on Friday, but Chicago responded through Viktor Stalberg late in the second period, and Brandon Saad scored the winner two minutes and 24 seconds into the third term.

In other results, the Vancouver Canucks had a third-period Dale Weise goal to thank for their 1-0 win over the Nashville Predators, pulling them to within a point of Anaheim in third place in the East.

And the Pittsburgh Penguins came from behind to post a 3-1 victory over the Florida Panthers, with Chris Kunitz, Matt Niskanen and Dustin Jeffery scoring the goals for the victors.

The victory may have come at a cost for Pittsburgh, however, with star centre Evgeni Malkin forced from the ice after crashing into the boards in the final period.
