Chicago Blackhawks: Three stars of the month (FAN VOTED)
By Ryan Fedrau
(First Star) Patrick Kane
Patrick Kane has had an amazing month of January. Kane is the only Blackhawk involved with the All-Star weekend. That gives other players time to rest. It’s well-needed rest, as the Blackhawks prepare for 12 of their next 14 games to be played on the road.
Kane hit his 1,000th career point on January 19th, 2020. He is officially the fourth Blackhawks’ player to hit 1,000 points as a Blackhawk.
Really, for the rest of his career, he’ll be chasing Blackhawks’ records. He is well on his way to another 100 point season. He already has 63 points in 51 games.
Kane is currently on an 11 games point streak. He has a point in every game he’s played in this decade. I know that’s only 10 games, but it sounds pretty cool.
Kane had 12 points in the last 10 games, 16 in the last 11. He only scored three goals in January. That isn’t much at all.
Even though he lacked scoring goals, the team still found a way to win six of their 10 games. When the All-Star break is over, the team will need more goals out of Kane. If Kane, Kubalik, and Toews can keep up their hot streaks, the team will be fine.
These next 14 games will be a big test for the Blackhawks. In my opinion, the Blackhawks have to win at least 10 of them to stay alive. They can fall any deeper and expect to make the playoffs.
