LOS ANGELES (AP) Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane scored in his 19th consecutive game Saturday night to set a new NHL record for the longest points streak by a U.S.-born player.

Kane scored a power-play goal midway through the first period of the Blackhawks' road trip finale against the Los Angeles Kings, beating Jonathan Quick with a high wrist shot and celebrating with a yell and a fist pump.

Kane's 14th goal of the season broke his three-way tie with American-born players Eddie Olczyk and Phil Kessel, who both had 18-game scoring streaks. The streak is the second-longest in Blackhawks history, tying a streak by Denis Savard 30 years ago.
