Kaner Gets Filthy in Shootout

Patrick Kane has always been wicked with his puck handling skills, but Wednesday night against the Minnesota Wild #88 out did himself. Kane’s shootout goal is a MUST SEE, and honestly you’ll want to watch it more than once. Even Jonathan Toews said Kane’s shootout goal  was “awesome, it was sick.”

Kane skates down on Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom, he slows almost to a stop, he dekes what seems like more than a dozen times (I lost track), completely fakes out Backstrom and BAM he fires into the empty net. Blackhawks win 4-3, clinching their fifth straight win on the road. The Wild lead the NHL with 44 points. The Blackhawks, who are 7-1-1 in their last nine games, have 42.

“I was ready to bring it to my forehand or backhand, and he bit on the backhand,” Kane said.

Though it’s still very early in the season, many say this could potentially be the best shootout goal of the year. You have to see it to believe it.Take a look at Patrick Kane’s shootout goal vs. Minnesota and share your thoughts!
