How long can the Chicago Blackhawks' history-making winning streak continue?

Perhaps a better question: Now 21 games into a 48-game, lockout-shortened season, will they ever lose in regulation play this season?

The NHL's best and only remaining undefeated team in regulation rallied to defeat the league's worst team, the Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-3 in overtime at the United Center.

Admittedly, it wasn't easy, however, as Chicago had to battle back three times from either a deficit or a tie, before Brent Seabrook scored the game-winner with 1:37 remaining in the extra period.

St. Louis Blues 4, Edmonton Oilers 2

Vladimir Sobotka broke a tie early in the third period and Jaroslav Halak made 15 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers before 19,476 at Scottrade Center.

St. Louis, which led the NHL with a 30-6-5 home mark last season, had just one win in its previous seven home games before facing the Oilers.

But the magic resurfaced in the form of four answered goals.
