Patrick Kane‘s point streak was on life support in Tuesday’s game against the Nashville Predators.

The 27-year-old scored this long empty net goal to extend his point streak to 23 games:

The goal also allowed him to hit another milestone.

This wasn’t the first time Kane’s streak was almost snapped.

And with under 30 seconds remaining in a game against the Ducks on Nov. 27, Kane picked up a secondary assist on Duncan Keith‘s game-tying goal. That one extended the streak to 18 games.
