The Chicago Blackhawks had a chance to make NHL history on Tuesday night. The Vancouver Canucks, their arch rivals for the last few seasons, were determined not to let it happen.

That was a recipe for a memorable game, and they didn’t disappoint: Chicago won in a shootout, 4-3, after Vancouver tied to the game with two goals in the last 2:42 of regulation.

The victory matched the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks’ record for longest point streak to start the season, a.k.a. most games to start the season without a regulation loss.

The Blackhawks improved to 13-0-3, and can set the record against the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

“It feels pretty good. It’s a special feeling right now. We want to make the record all ours, and we plan on doing that Friday night,” said Patrick Sharp, who scored his fourth of the season in the win.

Marian Hossa scored twice before leaving the game on a controversial hit from Jannik Hansen of the Canucks, whose forearm connected with Hossa’s head in the third period during a battle for a loose puck.

The Blackhawks won in the shootout on goals by Patrick Kane and Andrew Shaw, while Ray Emery (29 saves) stopped Ryan Kesler to preserve the win.

Alex Elder (on the power play) and Kevin Bieksa scored late in the third period to push overtime. Cory Schneider (40 saves) look the loss.
