Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks blew a two-goal lead late in regulation, but won the game in a shootout and matched an NHL record on Tuesday in a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks.
Chicago is now 13-0-3 on the season and have tied the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks' record of consecutive games with recording at least one point to start the season. The team will have a chance to set the record on Friday when it hosts San Jose.
In the third round of the shootout, Andrew Shaw skated in on net with a lot of speed and faked to the backhand before lifting the puck over Cory Schneider. Ryan Kesler had the last chance for Vancouver, but Ray Emery made a glove save on the wrister for the win.
Marian Hossa scored twice while Patrick Sharp also scored a goal for the Blackhawks, who have won three straight since a shootout loss to Anaheim last Tuesday. Ray Emery made 40 saves in the win.
Daniel Sedin, Kevin Bieksa and Alexander Edler each lit the lamp for the Canucks, who have dropped their past three games. Cory Schneider gave up all three goals on 32 shots in the loss.
