It started to look like the streak would finally come to an end. With less than two minutes to go in the Blackhawks game against the Winnipeg Jets, Patrick Kane was without a point. But when a player is in a grove like Kane, things just work out.

Up 2-1 late in the third period, the Blackhawks were looking to close out the win. When the Jets pulled their goalie, Kane had his opportunity. Kane passed the puck forward to Artemi Panarin, threw the puck towards the net.

The assist was Kane’s 22nd game with a point in a row, setting a new Blackhawks record. Kane had been tied with Bobby Hull at 21 games.

Sunday night’s assist was the second time in two weeks Kane found a way to keep the streak alive in the final minutes of a game. During the Blackhawks Nov. 27 win over the Ducks, Kane assisted on a goal with roughly 30 seconds remaining.

Panarin’s goal was followed by an extended cheer for Kane. The goal would be enough to close out the Jets, with the Blackhawks winning 3-1.
