CHICAGO -

Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Monday night to stretch their NHL-record opening points streak to 19 games.

Patrick Sharp set up the winning goal with a quick turn along the boards and a drive to the goal that led to two stops by Nikolai Khabibulin. Hossa picked up the second rebound and was stuffed by Khabibulin again before he poked it in for his ninth goal of the season.

   Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg also scored for Chicago (16-0-3), which has won six straight and nine of 10.

   Nail Yakupov and Jeff Petry had the goals for Edmonton, which had won three straight against the Blackhawks.
