NHL Scores: Blackhawks keep streak alive with overtime win over Columbus

Jonathan Daniel

It was a good night for streaks in the NHL.

It was a short one in the NHL on Friday, but the Blackhawks' OT thriller over Columbus more than made up for the lack of games. As usual. Let's get to the action that you might've missed.

Here's a quick glance at the full night of action:

Blues 4, Oilers 2

Blackhawks 4, Blue Jackets 3 (OT)

Ducks 3, Wild 2

Five Answers

Prior to last night's games, we presented f five burning questions regarding the night's action. Here are your cool, soothing answers.

1. Will the Chicago Blackhawks extend their point-streak to 21 games?

Yes. But it wasn't easy. The Blue Jackets played their best game of the season and took the 'Hawks to overtime, but weren't able to seal the deal. Luckily for Chicago, they would've earned a point whether the Blue Jackets tied the game late in the third or not.

2. Will Ray Emery remain unbeaten this season?

Yep. Emery improved his record to 9-0-0 this season with a 19-save effort. He wasn't tested nearly as much as the guy at the other end of the rink, but he came up big when his team needed him to.

3. Will the Anaheim Ducks extend their seven-game winning streak at home?

The Ducks had to survive a Wild rally in the third period, but they skated off their home ice with a 3-2 victory. Jonas Hiller was massive, stopping 31 shots on the night.

4. Will the Minnesota Wild pull even with the Vancouver Canucks?

Thanks to the losses by Minnesota and Edmonton the Northwest Division remains the same, with Vancouver leading the Wild and Oilers. The Western Conference is still as jam-packed as ever, though.

5. Will the St. Louis Blues continue their four-game point-streak against the Northwest Division?

The Blues got off to a slow start against Edmonton, but finished strong to earn a 4-2 victory. The key? A stifling defensive game that kept the Oilers from scoring almost whole periods at a time. Edmonton only managed 17 shots on Jaroslav Halak all night.

Impact Moment

What moment from last night's games will be making headlines in the coming days?

Brent Seabrook's OT winner kept the Hawks' record-setting point streak going strong.
