Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane’s point streak ends at 26 games

Patrick Kane’s 26-game point streak came to an end, but he’s excited to get back to just playing hockey.

The streak is over.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane did not register a point Tuesday night against the Colorado Avalanche in a 3-0 loss, ending his point streak at 26 games.

Kane had 16 goals and 24 assists during his streak, which began on Oct. 17 against the Columbus Blue Jackets with an empty-net goal.

The American-born forward had the NHL’s longest point streak since Mats Sundin went 30 straight games with the Quebec Nordiques during the 1992-93 season.

Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky holds the NHL record with a 51-game streak for the Edmonton Oilers that started the 1983-84 season. He had 61 goals and 92 assists during his streak.
