Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks snapped a 12 game point streak Friday night when the Blackhawks met the Dallas Stars. The streak was the longest in the NHL so far this season. During his streak, Kane scored 8 goals and 9 assists leading his team to a record of 9-2-1.
Patrick Kane came into the league at a young age and that reflected with some of his decision-making not only on the ice but also off the ice. But now at age 25, Patrick Kane has matured not only as a player, but also as a leader. He is letting his play on the ice do all his talking now. During the point streak, four of Kane’s eight goals were game winners. He has taken and put the Blackhawks on his back and it is reflecting in the standings as the Blackhawks sit atop the Western Conference and NHL with 44 points.
On the season, Kane is currently tied for 5th in overall scoring in the NHL with 16 goals and 14 assists for 30 points. He is third in goals only trailing Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Steen.
He has been good all year. He has the puck more this year. He has been dangerous. It seems like game in and game out he has at least two or three A-plus scoring chances.
Sky is the limit for Patrick Kane this season and for his Blackhawks as they look to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions. Kane is looking as motivated as ever this year and his play is proof of that. On Saturday against the Phoenix Coyotes, a day after the streak ended, Kane started what he hopes to be a new streak as he picked up a goal and an assist to help the Hawks to another win.
