Moment 3: Patrick Kane’s showtime

In defense of their Stanley Cup championship in 2013-14, the Blackhawks went against a familiar foe in the Minnesota Wild. The Blackhawks had beaten the Wild the previous time they met in the playoffs. This was the second year in a row the teams matched up in the playoffs.

This was the best team the Wild had assembled. They were built to beat the Blackhawks in the playoffs. In Game 1, the Wild had tied the game up late and had all the momentum on their side. This is when Kane shines. Kane took it upon his stick to put the game out of reach. He went to his backhand and created the “showtime” goal.

The ’Hawks would beat the Wild in six games and then sweep the Wild in the following year’s playoffs.
