Patrick Kane's Point Streak Comes To An End

from Brian Hedger at NHL.com,

Patrick Kane seemed relieved after his point streak ended at 26 games at United Center on Tuesday.

Kane's streak, which came to a halt in the Colorado Avalanche's 3-0 victory, is the longest by an American-born NHL player, longest in Chicago Blackhawks history and longest since Mats Sundin had a 30-game streak in 1992-93 for the Quebec Nordiques.

"It was a fun run," Kane said. "I think you never know what's going to happen with the streak, or there's a lot of games when it seemed like we were down and out, and you end up getting something at the end, whatever it may be. But, you know, it was fun breaking the American record. I was happy with that, and to break the franchise record too, that was pretty special as well. It was definitely fun while it lasted."
