Back on December 27th the Chicago Blackhawks were sitting in the middle of the Central Division after a 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.
This is the last time the Blackhawks have had to endure the sour taste of defeat.
Joel Quenneville’s club has rocketed to the top of the Western Conference thanks to a 12-game winning streak and here are the top moments from this incredible run.
4.) Rookie Artemi Panarin’s game-winning goal in overtime
The Blackhawks streak almost came to an end in Pittsburgh as the team squandered a two goal lead, but Panarin came through in the clutch by beating Marc-Andre Fleury.
3.) Corey Crawford takes over league lead in shutouts
Crawford started off 2016 much like he ended by 2015, in dominating fashion. Crawford earned his sixth shutout of the season with a 3-0 victory over the Senators.
2.) Patrick Kane records his first career regular season hat trick
While it might seem a bit ridiculous, Patrick Kane hadn’t recorded a regular season hat trick until he buried three goals against the Maple Leafs to extend Chicago’s winning streak to 10 games.
