Blackhawks make it 19 in a row

26 February 2013 07:58

Marian Hossa has scored an overtime goal to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL.

Chicago came from behind on two occasions to eventually force overtime through Viktor Stalberg's goal just two minutes and 24 seconds into the third period and Hossa's winner ensured the Blackhawks have taken points in their opening 19 games of the season.

While the Blackhawks have lost three matches in shootouts, NHL rules mean they have still collected one point each in those games, making it a record-setting streak for the Chicago team.

Edmonton took the lead with only 4:28 expired in the match on Tuesday when Jeff Petry slotted a short-handed goal but Chicago were level soon after through Patrick Kane.

The Oilers' Nail Yakupov scored the only goal of the second period but an early third-period goal from Stalberg meant overtime would be required.

With just 1:44 gone in overtime, Hossa smashed the puck home after Patrick Sharp forced Edmonton goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin into two saves.

Chicago (35 points) lead the Central Division by 12 points after their win over the Oilers with the Nashville Predators in second spot on 23.

Nashville also won in overtime 5-4 against the Dallas Stars, coming from 4-2 down midway through the second period to force an extra period before Roman Josi scored the winning goal.

In the third overtime game on Tuesday, the Ottawa Senators defeated the Montreal Canadiens in a shootout.

Having remained tied at 1-1 throughout overtime, Ottawa triumphed in the shootout thanks to three saves from their goaltender Ben Bishop.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs won 4-2 against the Philadelphia Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings thumped the Anaheim Ducks 5-2.
