FROM ELIAS: Jonathan Toews reached the 20-goal mark for the sixth time in his six NHL seasons when he scored the tying goal for the Blackhawks with 2:57 remaining in the third period of their game against the Red Wings. His teammate, Patrick Kane, has also played six seasons in the NHL and scored at least 20 goals for the Blackhawks in each season. Toews and Kane are only the third pair of players to score 20 or more goals as teammates for one club in each of their first six or more NHL seasons. The other pairs to do that were the Oilers’ Glenn Anderson and Jari Kurri, and the Nordiques’ Peter and Anton Stastny, each with eight-season streaks from 1980–81 through 1987–88.
