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.

In a recent interview, Chicago Blackhawks Coach Joel Quenneville spoke highly of his star winger.

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.

    And he’s only 19 behind Hossa in plus/minus. How’s he doing on penalty killing? Oh that’s right, they wouldn’t think of using such a defensive liability on the penalty kill.
    He has the #1 selling jersey because of articles like this.

      During the streak +6….

      You know the great thing about stats and analytics…you can make them say whatever you want. You obviously don’t like Kane. The guys got how many Stanley Cup Rings? And if memory serves me best doesn’t he have a Stanley Cup winning goal???? And a -3 is a defensive liability?? Pretty sure he is leading the team in goals and is second on the team in assists, putting him first overall on the team in points.
      He has the #1 selling jersey because he is a Stanley Cup champion on a great team.

        Lifetime Hawks fan here. I guess my problem with Kane is he constantly gets equal or more credit than better players on the team. His stick handling skills are unbelievable and he has an excellent shot but he has average speed for a winger, he can’t dig in the corners, he sacrifices back checking for cherry picking and isn’t strong enough to throw a check on a figure skater.
        We obviously have different ways of measuring a players worth. You like the big point getter and I prefer the guy who when he’s on the ice, his team scores more goals than they give up.

        • Timothy Redinger

          The Chicago Blackhawks have allowed more goals than any other team in their division save for Winnipeg – think there is a larger issue than Kane being a -3. You have a five point lead on St. Louis for the division, and the only team in the league to have 20 wins so far and have points in 24 of 28 games.
          Every player is going to have flaws. Kane is a +33 all time in the NHL and hasn’t been a minus player through an entire season save for his first two years in the NHL.
          Coming from a Sabres fan – I wish I could bitch about the best player on my team being a -3 with as much scoring and winning that goes on.

            I agree that his +33 is good but not great. Toews is about +130 in that same time. Kane is last on the team in plus/minus this year and was 11th last year. I like having him on the team but to say he’s better than the likes of Toews or Hossa is crazy.

        • Jason Bernas

          I will take some of his deficiencies on the defensive end for the offense and timely goals and points he creates.

    • Jason Bernas

      He was a +6 during the streak

        Thanks Jason, didn’t know that.
