The Chicago Blackhawks (13-0-3) topped the Vancouver Canucks (8-3-4) in a shootout to emerge victorious at the United Center on Tuesday night by a score of 4-3. 

This win ties the Blackhawks for the best start in NHL history as they have yet to lose a game in regulation this season.

Scoring chances came early and often during the first period as the Blackhawks found themselves with multiple breakaway opportunities to start the game, but were unable to find the back of the net.

Daniel Sedin started the scoring for Vancouver after netting a backhander for the lone goal of the first period.

Marian Hossa scored two of the Blackhawks three second period goals, which gave the Hawks a 3-1 advantage going into the third period.

Chicago's lead lasted until late in the third period, but the Canucks would answer back with two goals of their own in the final three minutes off the sticks off Alexander Edler and Kevin Bieksa.

Those goals sent the game into overtime.
