The 2013 Blackhawks have long since left the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks in their dust, but oh, there are mountains left to climb. Chicago's streak of games with at least a point reached 22 this season and sits at 28 overall if you count last season. It's time to see how they stack up against some of the greatest winning/unbeaten regular-season streaks in history.
1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers: 35 games
The "Broad Street Bullies" own the pinnacle of unbeaten streaks in hockey; it's also the longest in major American sports. (FYI: The 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins have the longest straight-up winning streak in the NHL, at 17.)
1971-72 L.A. Lakers: 33 games
As good as those Michael Jordan-led Bulls teams were, even they won "only" 18 straight as their best stretch.
1935 Cubs: 21 games
Wait, what? The Cubs own the longest winning streak without ties in Major League Baseball? Why yes, yes they do. (The 1916 N.Y. Giants went 26 games without a loss, but MLB discards records that include ties from its books.)
2008 and 2009 Indianapolis Colts: 23 games
When you have Peyton Manning calling the shots, you're gonna have a lot of teams that wish they'd stayed home that day.
1907-17 Washington Huskies: 63 games
The Huskies went 59–0–4 in this stretch. Right up there are the Oklahoma Sooners, who actually won 47 straight from 1953-57.
1971-74 UCLA Bruins: 74 games
This ridiculous record doesn't even count the 14 straight postseason games the Bruins won, which would bring this up to 88.
