DETROIT (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks can't be beat, in regulation at least, because they can roll four lines of forwards, play three pairs of defensemen and put one of their two good goaltenders in net.

And, they have Patrick Kane.

Kane scored with 2:02 left in the third period and had the only shootout goal, helping Chicago beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 Sunday and extend its NHL-record, season-opening points streak to 22 games.

Chicago has earned at least a point in 28 straight games - dating to a March 25, 2012, loss in regulation to Nashville - to tie the second-longest streak in league history.

The Blackhawks have matched Montreal's multi-season points run from the 1977-78 season and trail only Philadelphia's streak of 35 straight games with at least a point during the 1979-80 season.
