Patrick Kane scored in overtime last night to tie up the series at two a piece, and he also added another piece of footage to his Blackhawks Legend file. Here is a quick look back at all his great games when it mattered the most.
Kane’s first career playoff hat trick came against the Vancouver Canucks in 2009 a game that helped the Hawks get past a lot of playoff demons and move on to the Western Conference Finals against Detroit.
In 2010 it looked like the Blackhawks were about to go down 3-2 and head on to the road when Kane scored this dramatic tying goal in Game #5 of the opening round of the playoffs and with it the goal sent the Blackhawks flying to the Stanley Cup finals.
Kane 2010 highlight package as we all know wasn’t over and he scored the greatest goal of my lifetime which secured the first Stanley Cup in 49 years and the first Cup many Blackhawks fans had seen in their lifetime. The career package could end here and he would be a legend but it didn’t so luckily it’s in the middle of the highlights instead of the end!
It had been two very frustrating off seasons and almost an entire new team outside of the core that made it to the Western Conference Finals in 2013, and it was Kane that won it and sent them to the Finals and their Second Cup in four years.
And now last night with the Hawks facing a 3-1 deficit in the series and a trip back to St. Louis, Kane scores the game winner and it evens the series at 2. Who knows how we look back at this goal months and years from now, but today it is one that adds to his Legendary status!
Thanks #88 for all the great highlights! Can’t wait to see what you have in store in the future!
