Kane keeps going in Blackhawks win

CHICAGO — Patrick Kane extended his franchise-record points streak to 25 games with a power-play goal and Corey Crawford stopped 25 shots for his third shutout of the season on Friday as the Blackhawks beat the Jets 2-0.

Kane, who entered as the league's leading scorer, got his 19th goal midway through the second period to match Sidney Crosby's 25-game streak, set in 2010-11, for the longest in the league since 1992-93.

Game highlights: Marion Gaborik's shootout goal lifted the Kings to their sixth straight win, 3-2 over the host Penguins. Jonathan Quick stopped 40 shots for Los Angeles. … Kyle Palmieri scored with 39.3 seconds left in overtime to lead the host Devils past the Red Wings 3-2.

Around the league: Sharks forward Logan Couture has had a procedure to close a bleeding artery in his right thigh, an injury he sustained Wednesday in Edmonton.
