On Dec. 3, the visiting Chicago Blackhawks (7-12-4) defeated the New York Rangers (11-10-4) 5-2, snapping an eight-game losing streak.
With an assist on Taylor Raddysh's goal to put the team up 4-1 in the third period, Blackhawks star Patrick Kane recorded his third point of the night (one goal and two assists) and recorded his 1,200th point of his career.
"You play a long time in the league you're going to reach certain milestones, so it feels good," Kane said in a press release. "It's nice to get it on a night like this where you get a win and you can contribute for the team, too."
The forward became the 50th player to reach the major milestone.
Chicago next visits the New York Islanders on Sunday, Dec. 4; and the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday, Dec. 6.
University of Chicago (UChicago) soccer coach Julianne Sitch has become the first woman to lead a men's soccer team to a national title, USA Today noted.
The first-year coach led the Maroons to a 2-0 win over Williams College in the NCAA Division III men's soccer national championship on Dec. 3, capping UChicago's undefeated 22-0-1 season with the program's first-ever title.
Sitch, from Oswego, was named Illinois Gatorade Women's High School Soccer Player of the Year in 2002, according to her UChicago bio. She played collegiate soccer at DePaul from 2002-05, where she set school records in career points (90), goals (32) and assists (26).
Her previous job was as assistant coach for the Chicago Red Stars.
