Kane scores in seventh straight game as ‘Hawks top Flames

7 Comments

The Chicago Blackhawks used a three-goal second period to beat the Calgary Flames, 4-1.

One of the those goals came off the stick of ‘Hawks forward Patrick Kane, who’s now scored in seven consecutive games.

The 26-year-old also extended his point streak to 13 games and he’s picked up at least one point in 16 of 18 contests.

Kane has 13 goals and 28 points this season. He’s now the league leader in both those categories.

Chicago’s other three goals were scored by Marian Hossa, Artemi Panarin and Jonathan Toews (empty net).

The ‘Hawks have struggled throughout the month of November, but it’s clear that they’re a different team with Duncan Keith in the lineup.

Keith, who missed 10 games because of a knee injury, played big minutes in both his team’s games this weekend.

The 32-year-old picked up an assist in each game and played 27:34 on Saturday and 24:13 tonight.

The Blackhawks will close out the month of November with a six-game road trip that will take them to Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, San Jose, Anaheim and Los Angeles. Their next home game will be on Dec. 1 against Minnesota.

The Flames will head home after a four-game road trip that saw them pick up just three of a possible eight points. They’ll host the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.
