Quenneville ties for 2nd on NHL wins list, Blackhawks win 8th straight

CHICAGO (WREX) -

Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, fresh off a three-year contract extension, won his 782nd game on Tuesday, tying him with Al Arbour for second on the National Hockey League's all-time coaching wins list as the Hawks picked up a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators at United Center to extend their current win streak to eight games.

The Blackhawks got a two-goal effort from Andrew Shaw, and another tally from Brent Seabrook. Marian Hossa added two assists while goaltender Corey Crawford made 41 saves against the Predators.

Quenneville can pass Arbour with a 783rd career win in Montreal on Thursday. He has an upward climb to take the league's top spot - Scotty Bowman leads all coaches with 1,244 career victories.
