Give Patrick Kane time and space, and he seems to make opposing teams pay. And on Wednesday, Patrick Sharp was the beneficiary.
Kane caught a wide open Sharp with a cross-ice pass, and Sharp ripped it top corner on Jonathan Quick for his 10th goal of the season. It also gave the Chicago Blackhawks a 2-1 lead over L.A. in the first period.
By the way, Kane opened the scoring with his 23rd goal of the season.
