Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane pushed his point streak to 21 games Thursday night with a power-play goal in the second period against the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Kane is now tied with Bobby Hull for the franchise record. His point streak features 32 points on 13 goals and 21 assists, and is the longest since Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby scored in 25 straight games in 2010. It's the longest streak in NHL history by an American-born player.

The 2007 No. 1 pick also added an assist on Artemi Panarin's goal to pass Jeremy Roenick for eighth all-time in franchise history with 595 points.

Hull set the franchise record in the 1971-72 season between Dec. 5 and Jan. 23. He had 35 points on 23 goals and 12 assists. Kane can break the franchise record with a point against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.

Kane is only the fourth player in NHL history to register a point streak of 20 or more games since the 1997-98 season. Crosby, Dany Heatley (22 games, 2005-06) and Paul Stastny (20 games, 2006-07) are the others, per NHL.com.
