After setting the record for a point streak among American-born players on Saturday, Kane is taking his career-best 19-game run into Tuesday’s tilt with the Central Division-rival Minnesota Wild. The 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy winner recorded 15 assists and 23 points during the month, which was highlighted by a career-high seven-game goal streak from Nov. 2-15.
