Blackhawks win 11th straight, extend points streak

CHICAGO – Daniel Carcillo scored the tiebreaking goal with 49.3 seconds left in regulation and the Blackhawks won their 11th consecutive game, beating the Colorado Avalanche, 3-2, on Wednesday night to extend the best start in NHL history.

Jonathan Toews and Andrew Shaw also scored for the Hawks (21-0-3), who reached the halfway point of a lockout-shortened season without losing in regulation. The remarkable Hawks have earned at least one point in their first 24 games, stretching their NHL record.

Dating to last year's regular season, the streak is 30 games.

Carcillo knocked in a rebound with a backhand shot after Semyon Varlamov made two in-close stops on Viktor Stalberg during a scrum in the crease.
