If teams were supposed to be rusty following the conclusion of the lockout, no one told the Chicago Blackhawks. Through just over a month of action, the incredible play of the Blackhawks has been one of the league’s best storylines in the shortened 2012-13 NHL season.
On Feb. 22, the Hawks solidified their place in the record books with a win over the visiting San Jose Sharks, 2-1. The victory gave the squad its 17th straight game with at least one point, which eclipsed the previous record of 16 points to start a season, set by the Anaheim Ducks during the 2006-07 campaign. The season-opening point streak has since been extended to 19 games, following the Hawks’ thrilling 3-2 overtime win over the Edmonton Oilers at the United Center on Feb. 25.
The stakes are raised with each game, making already-popular Chicago Blackhawks tickets all the more coveted.
