Let Hossa speak: Blackhawks fans loud and proud as streak hits 19

Feb 26, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

Marian Hossa caused an eruption among Chicago Blackhawks fans with the overtime goal against the Edmonton Oilers Monday.

That was only 1:44 from the start of overtime, which symbolized the Blackhawks historical streak of 19 straight games without a regulation loss to begin the 2013 regular season. The Blackhawks are 16-0-3 and their 35 points put them eight ahead of the Anaheim Ducks for top spot in the Western Conference, before the Ducks took the ice Monday against the L.A. Kings.

Hossa was, as per NHL.com, the first star of the game in the Blackhawks 3-2 comeback win over Edmonton. He could barely get a word in at first during his ice-level interview with CSN Chicago’s Susannah Collins.

    It’s good to be a Hawks fan right now.

      It’s a very cool thing to watch.

      Biggest challenge for the Hawks is when the first loss actually occurs… that can be a downer emotionally leading to a streak the other way.

      Detroit saw a bit of that after the Canucks broke their home win streak last season.

      I guess… they could just decide to go undefeated!

    With the exception of it being a different team, with a few minor tweaks to the plot. The Hawks are making this story too easy on the writers.

      There is nothing easy about a 16-0-3 record. Congrats to all hawks fans. This is extremely fun to watch, and i find myself rooting for them to keep this going. Its good for the sport and its just plain cool to see a team be such a juggernaut so early.
