No. 10: Patrick Kane And John Scott Have A Go

This one was more goofy than anything. But it was a nice moment of levity during an All-Star Game that was surrounded with silly controversy.

While opinions are mixed on former Blackhawk John Scott’s inclusion in the game, as a captain no less, some of what he actually did during the exhibition was entertaining. That included this moment with current Blackhawk Patrick Kane.

At the end of the first period, Scott sent Kane to the deck in neutral ice and rushed down the ice on a breakaway. Pekka Rinne stoned the shot, then sent a laser to Jamie Benn for a 2-on-1 with Kane. The Chicago star converted, but he “wasn’t happy” with Scott’s hit earlier.

The two proceeded to drop their gloves and lock up in a fake tussle, both smiling the whole way. The crowd at Bridgestone Arena was wild — a crowd that no doubt was filled with Nashville Predators fans.

It was a nice moment in a game that got way too much negative attention before it even started.
