DENVER (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks' record for the best start in NHL history is over at 24 games after a 6-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.

Playing their third game in four nights, the Blackhawks finally were beaten in regulation after going 21-0-3. They went through the first half of the lockout-shortened schedule earning a point in every game.

Their string of 30 games without a regulation loss dating back to last season also was snapped.

Matt Duchene had a goal and three assists for Colorado, which lost at Chicago on Wednesday night.
