Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Brent Seabrook scored with 1:37 remaining in overtime, and the Chicago Blackhawks extended their amazing streak with a 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets at United Center.

On the winning goal, Chicago captain Jonathan Toews retrieved a puck he chipped past Blue Jackets defenseman Adrian Aucoin and fed Seabrook a cross- ice pass that he fired into an open net.

The Blackhawks stretched their NHL record season-opening points streak to 21 games (18-0-3). They have earned at least one point 27 consecutive games overall, the third-longest such run in league history.

The 1977-78 Montreal Canadiens had a 28-game point streak and the 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers own the NHL record at 35 games.

However, those clubs didn't lose any games during their runs.
