Kane Ties Bobby Hull's Consecutive Points Record with Goal in Ottawa



Patrick Kane buried this wrist shot at 3:27 of the second period during the Blackhawks 4-3 OT loss to the Senators, enabling the NHL's leading scorer to move into a tie with Bobby Hull for the franchise's all-time consecutive points scored streak.

Kane has points in 21 consecutive games. Hull achieved the feat during the 1971-72 season for the Blackhawks.

"When you're tied with anything with Bobby Hull, it's pretty special considering the career that guy had," Kane said.

Kane has 13 goals and 22 assists in the 21 games.

Kane is just the third player to record a points scored streak of more than 20 games in the last 18 NHL seasons.



Even the Mike Hoffman, who scored the game-winner in OT for Ottawa, was pretty blown away by Kane's game on Thursday:

"Yeah, he is pretty fun to watch, even if you're on the opposite side," Senators forward Hoffman said. "I knew we were going to play against him before the game. You just try to be better than him as much as you can. Obviously he's a dominant player, probably the best in the League. You try to shut him down as much as you can, but he still comes away with three (points)."

Kane also added two assists in the game, including this sweet feed to set up Artem Anisimov's 11th goal of the season:



Kane will look to break the Chicago record on Sunday when the 'Hawks meet Winnipeg at home.
