The Blackhawks (14-0-3) still haven't lost in 60 minutes during this lockout-shortened season, breaking the Anaheim Ducks' mark set during the 2006-07 campaign, a year the Ducks won the Stanley Cup.
Viktor Stalberg had the other Chicago goal.
"It's kind of crazy to think you're not going to lose a game in regulation for the first 17 games," Stalberg told NHL.com.
Patrick Marleau scored San Jose's lone tally.
The Blackhawks have a chance to add to their record Sunday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
"There's no looking back. We want to keep winning," Stalberg told NHL.com. "If we keep playing the way we have been, we'll be in a good spot to keep winning. Obviously a loss is going to come at some point, but we want to try to get as many points as possible."
Surprisingly, the Hawks aren't even halfway to the longest single-season unbeaten stretch in NHL history, the 35-game streak set by the Philadelphia Flyers during the 1979-80 season.
