Last night the Blackhawks beat the Canucks in OT to tie an NHL record of 16 straight games with at least one point to start a season. This is the best start in Chicago's history and on Friday night they will have a chance to take the NHL record.
"It's a remarkable start," coach Joel Quenneville said. "We're very happy and pleased. Guys should be proud of the achievement and where they're at, especially in a 48-game season. It puts us in a real good spot."
Chicago faces a tough Sharks team on Friday for the 2nd time in a week. They could be without Hossa who needed help getting off the ice after getting hit in the back of the head by Jannik Hansen.
"It's great to start, but that's all it is: It's a start," said Ray Emery, who made 29 saves last night. "You want to see it at the end of the year, that's when it counts."
