DETROIT -- Patrick Kane had the only goal of the shootout after tying the score on a power play with a little over two minutes left in regulation as the Chicago Blackhawks extended their NHL record to 22 consecutive games with a point to start a season in a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday at Joe Louis Arena.
Goaltender Corey Crawford stopped 32 shots for Chicago (19-0-3).
Tomas Tatar scored for Detroit (10-9-1) and Jimmy Howard had 32 saves.

He put in a shot from the bottom of the right circle after Detroit defenseman Kyle Quincey fanned on a clearing attempt from in front of the net.
