The Chicago Blackhawks NHL-record of 24 consecutive games with a point ended Friday night after losing to the Colorado Avalanche, 6-2. It's their first loss in regulation since March 25 of last year.

Chicago raced out to an early 1-0 lead following a first period goal from Jonathan Toews but was unable to slow the oncoming onslaught from Colorado.

The Avalanche got on the board late in the first with a power play goal from Paul Stastny. Colorado put home four more goals in the second period of play to extend their lead to 5-1 over Chicago.

The Blackhawks Bryan Bickell shortened the Avalanche lead to 5-2 with a goal midway through the third period. Chicago wouldn't have a comeback to extend the streak this time against Colorado. P.A. Parenteau iced the game for the Avalanche with a third-period goal.

During the streak, the Blackhawks went 21-0-3 while compiling 45 points to put them atop the Western Conference standings. This is the first loss of the season since the shortened NHL season began on January 18.
