The Chicago Blackhawks extended their NHL-record, season-opening point streak to 21 games.
It wasn't easy at home against the team with the fewest points in the league.
Brent Seabrook finished off a 2-on-1 rush at 3:23 of overtime to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 win over the banged-up Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Blackhawks (18-0-3) have won eight straight overall and haven't been beaten in regulation time in 27 games, dating to a loss on March 25, 2012, to Nashville.
Chicago put this one in the win column when Jonathan Toews carried the puck down left wing and dished a cross-ice pass to Seabrook, who fired in a shot from the right circle before goalie Steve Mason could slide across the crease.
"It was a great pass by Tazer," Seabrook said. "I just tried to get up in the play. Tazer had some speed going up, and I tried to help out."
The Blue Jackets (5-12-4) are saddled with injuries to key players, but they skated toe-to-toe with Chicago for much of the game -- including leading twice.
"They come out and play 60 minutes hard," Seabrook said. "There are no easy games, and you can never take a night off."
Columbus' Ryan Johansen scored with 7:37 left in
Ducks 3, Wild 2: Teemu Selanne scored his 669th NHL goal, Jonas Hiller made 31 saves, and Anaheim held off Minnesota's late surge and won its eighth straight at home.
Captain Ryan Getzlaf and Matt Beleskey also scored for the Ducks, who have won eight of nine and 12 of 14 despite barely holding on to their 3-0 lead over Minnesota after two periods.
Anaheim (15-3-1) has the NHL's second-best record behind Chicago, and hasn't lost at Honda Center since its home opener on Jan. 25.
Blues 4, Oilers 2: Vladmir Sobotka put St. Louis ahead early in the third period and added an assist for the Blues, who rallied from two goals down to beat visiting Edmonton.
David Backes added an insurance tally with 5:20 to go, and Jaroslav Halak was strong throughout in net for the Blues, who trailed 2-0 after the first period.
Devils: New Jersey activated left wing Ryan Carter from injured reserve. Carter, returning from a concussion he suffered Feb. 18, should be in the lineup Saturday, when the struggling Devils take on Buffalo.
