CHICAGO — The Chicago Blackhawks claimed at least a point in their 30th straight regular-season game with a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday at the United Center.

The Hawks (21-0-3) extended their NHL record streak of not losing in regulation to start the season to 24 games — halfway through this lockout-shortened season — while adding to a team record with their 11th straight victory.

The Blackhawks haven't been defeated in regulation in 30 games dating to last season, which trails only the Philadelphia Flyers' legendary 35-game streak set in 1979-80 — the longest such record in North American major professional sports history.

Their last regular-season loss was a 6-1 decision at home against Nashville on March 25, 2012.

Daniel Carcillo had the game-winning goal in the final minute Wednesday, which followed Jonathan Toews' shorthanded tally to tie the game in the third period.

Chicago can extend its amazing streak Friday night at Colorado.
