Blackhawks beat Edmonton in overtime to keep streak alive
(MCT) CHICAGO _ Nikolai Khabibulin stumbled coming out of the tunnel from the Edmonton Oilers' dressing room to start the second period before steadying himself on the bench and taking the ice.
Then the Oilers goaltender was tripped up by the Blackhawks, and the longest streak in NHL history to start a season without a regulation loss lives on at 19.
Marian Hossa scored the winner in overtime to lift the Hawks to a 3-2 victory over the Oilers on Monday night at the United Center. Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg had goals in regulation and Ray Emery earned the win in goal as the Hawks improved to 16-0-3 this season. Dating to last season, they have gone 25 consecutive games with at least one point.
