1. Patrick Kane, Game 6 vs Philadelphia in 2010

We’ve already touched on the 2010 playoffs in this article. Not only was this goal special, but it was also named ‘Goal of the Decade’.

Patrick Kane took a shot from the left circle from a weird angle that somehow got in the net, in Game 6, overtime. Kane’s goal was the 15th time it was scored in overtime, up to that point. Since then, it has happened for other teams.

This goal by Kane was one that cemented himself as a legend in Chicago. He was already one of the best players on the team, but this goal made him a household name. In 2010, the Blackhawks broke their 49-year drought without winning the Stanley Cup.

The 2010 Blackhawks were a special team. This goal was almost a fitting way to end that long, exciting playoff run. It also made fans excited for their next one.

Even though the 2011 Blackhawks were the “Hangover Hawks”, they’d go one to win two more Stanley Cups. They probably could have won one or two more. 2014 and 2017 should have been Stanley Cup years.

What’s positive is, Kane is in the prime of his career. The team is starting to get things on the right track again. There is still time for the Blackhawks to open up another five-year window where they can win multiple cups.

Kane and Toews will win at least one more cup together before they retire. It’s just a matter of when?

Let us know down below which one of these goals was your favorite. What goal did we miss?
