Video: Hawks’ Hossa, Sharp overwhelm Khabibulin for OT winner

Feb 26, 2013, 9:04 AM EST

Going into Monday’s game, the Chicago Blackhawks already had the NHL record for most consecutive games with at least a point to start the season. After 60 minutes of play, the Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks were tied at two, extending the streak to 19 no matter what happened.

But the record was never the most important thing to the Blackhawks in the first place. It’s just a byproduct of their desire to get points and not become complacent in the face of a hot streak.

Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa showed that they’re still hungry as they relentlessly fought to beat Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin in overtime:

After the game, Hossa talked to CSN Chicago’s Susannah Collins. If you missed that last night, you can also view it below:

    I’m surprised Hossa was so fresh after his miracle recovery from the Hansen bludgeoning [the league should be striking a committee to examine blatant deficiencies in helmet construction after Hossa was felled as if he’d been the victim of a sniper…the one hiding on the icy knoll ]. One would have thought travel to and from Lourdes itself would have taken Marian off the roster for two weeks or better? I need less Hossa…
