Blackhawks win team-record 12th straight, top Predators 4-1

The Chicago Blackhawks are ready for their next game, with very little time spent celebrating a franchise-record 12th straight win.

Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist and the Blackhawks beat the Nashville Predators 4-1 Tuesday night, setting a new mark for a team with three Stanley Cup championships over the past six seasons.

"It's one by one," goalie Corey Crawford said. "It seems like and feels like in this room that right after the game, it's done and on to the next one. That's the kind of atmosphere it's been around here for a little bit now. We're gaining so much momentum and really playing a well-rounded game right now."
