It’s always fun to watch Patrick Kane play, but it’s especially so when he plays against his hometown team. In the current five-game winning streak against the Sabres, Kane has three goals and two assists, including a goal in each of the games last season. He was also able to get the game-winning goal in the shootout against the Stars, in addition to the assist on the game-tying goal from Patrick Sharp. Let’s hope that Kane’s can make it a point (and scoring) streak tonight. As long as he doesn’t blow a tire while setting up a great shot.
