SHARE WATCH: Patrick Kane’s goal breaks NHL record

With a first-period goal against the Kings last night, Patrick Kane extended his point streak to a career-high 19 games and broke an NHL record in the process.

The Blackhawks winger became the first American-born player in NHL history to tally a point in 19 consecutive games.

Kane had previously tied Eddie Olczyk (Toronto Maple Leafs, 1989-90) and Phil Kessel (Boston Bruins, 2008-09) at 18, according to NHL.com.

The streak, which began Oct. 17 against Columbus, is the longest in the NHL since Sidney Crosby strung together a 25-game streak in 2010, according to Elias.

Kane still has a long way to go to break the NHL’s all-time best point streak. Wayne Gretzky scored in 51 consecutive games during the 1984-84 season.
