Video: Kane waits out Quick to score

3 Comments

Patrick Kane went seven consecutive playoff games without a goal before scoring in Game 4 on Friday. Now he has tallies in two consecutive games after fattening the Chicago Blackhawks’ Game 5 lead against the Los Angeles Kings to 2-0 on Saturday.

Watch as he waits out Jonathan Quick to find the net on a shot that almost tricks the eye (it looks a bit like it hits the crossbar, doesn’t it?):

If Chicago holds on, the Boston Bruins might just have a handful to deal with in a revitalized Kane.

(Unless he simply remains streaky; he failed to score in his first six games of the 2013 playoffs, scored a goal in two straight games and then went on another seven-game goalless streak …)
