The Blackhawks have talked all season about their depth and how anyone, on any given night, can be the latest hero. For yet another game, they put it into action, too.
Brent Seabrook scored the game-winner, and the Blackhawks’ magical start continued with their 4-3 ovetime victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night. The Blackhawks ran their regulation loss-free streak to 21 consecutive games, as they now sport an 18-0-3 mark heading into Sunday’s game in Detroit.
It’s a run that even has players a bit perplexed.
“That doesn’t feel like the record we have right now,” said Bryan Bickell, who scored his third goal of the season. “We’re just approaching every game to get two points.”
And once again they got them, thanks to that spread-the-wealth scoring. A night after Jonathan Toews scored two in the Blackhawks’ victory over the Blues, the Blackhawks got a goal from four different players. Viktor Stalberg, who killed the Blue Jackets last year, got his first of 2013 against them in the first period. Patrick Sharp and Bickell scored within 59 seconds of each other.
