2. Patrick Kane Is THE Closer

If you go to the dictionary and look at closer there is a picture of Patrick Kane. Not really but it really feels like there should be! He’s the best and it all started back in 2010 Game #6 in Philly!

We could go on and on about how Kane finishes games from the afore mentioned Game #5 Western Conference Final OT clincher to the fact that he has two career hat tricks in his career and they both have come in the playoffs in series clinching wins.
