Daniel Carcillo scored the tiebreaking goal with 49.3 seconds left in regulation and the Chicago Blackhawks won their 11th consecutive game, beating the visiting Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Wednesday night to extend the best start in NHL history.
Jonathan Toews and Andrew Shaw also scored for Chicago (21-0-3), which reached the halfway point of a lockout-shortened season without losing in regulation. The remarkable Blackhawks 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.
"Being down, resiliency, perseverance, whatever you want to call it, there's a belief in this locker room that whatever position we're in, we can come back," Carcillo said. "That's one of our biggest assets."
Chicago's overall points streak is the second-longest during one season in NHL history. The 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers set the league record at 35 games with a 25-0-10 run.
Ducks 2, Coyotes 0: Jonas Hiller faced only 18 shots in his first shutout of the season, Corey Perry scored in the first period and Anaheim beat Phoenix for its ninth straight home victory.
