The Streak finally struck out. The Avalanche, those dragon slayers, finally slew the beast that was the Chicago Blackhawks' 30-game points streak. The Avs didn't just stop the streak, either. They took it and smashed it over their knees in a convincing 6-2 win Friday at the Pepsi Center. The Blackhawks thus have a crooked number in that second column of their record, at 21-1-3. Chicago's points streak extended to last season and was nearing the all-time record of 35 set by Philadelphia in 1979-80.
