Patrick Kane was recently voted best Stick-handler by his peers. Kane has been an electric factory since stepping on the ice in his rookie season back in 2008. As a result, Kane earned the nickname “Showtime.” Kane’s ability to stay calm and cool while stickhandling in a phone booth is just magical to watch, and you could almost say he’s a magic man… Patrick Kane continues to age like fine wine putting up his third-highest point total this season. With that said, Kane struggled at times during the season and didn’t blow the top of the jar in the goal-scoring department, scoring a measly twenty-six goals.
Normally, Showtime has a highlight-reel goal that rocks your socks off… was this the case?
Patrick Kane’s Top Five Goals Of The 2021-2022 Season
01/28/2022 Vs. Colorado Avalanche
Kane’s second goal
This goal is solely on this list because of the similarity between this goal and Kane’s first goal Vs. the Kings in game five of the 2013 Western Conference finals.
02/25/22 Vs. New Jersey Devils
Kane’s First Goal In The Game
This was the most exhilarating game of the season for the Blackhawks. Patrick Kane brings the best out of young American stud hockey players. Much like when Kane and Matthews went back and forth, Kane and Jack Hughes would go toe to toe, both dealing blows throughout the game. The Blackhawks would be down 2-1 after one (including a Jack Hughes goal). However, Chicago would storm back to win 8-5 on the BACK of Kane, who would score a Hat-trick and add an assist. Hughes would finish with a goal and two assists, one of the many legendary battles between the two American boys that are due to come. The goal falling in the five spot will be Kanes first of the game. On the power play, Kane would receive a slick pass from DeBrincat and rip a beautiful shot short side above Gillies glove to tie the game at two.
11/17/2021 @ Seattle Kraken
Chicago would blow the new franchise out in the first-ever meeting between the Blackhawks and Kraken, going up 3-0 on a beautiful Patrick Kane goal. Kurashev would make a nice sauce pass over to Kane on the rush. Kane dusts the puck off before firing the biscuit top shelf over Grubauers glove, going BAR DOWN! The Blackhawks would go on to win 4-2.
4/14/2022 Vs. San Jose Sharks
Chicago and San Jose would go back and forth in a barn burner of a game. Ultimately Chicago would win the game 5-4. The goal is the opening goal of the game. Kane, DeBrincat, and Strome are coming down on a three-on-one. As they approach the top of the circles, Kane removes his glove from his stick while eyeing down the puck carrier DeBrincat. Kane points at Strome, signaling DeBrincat to move the puck to Strome. DeBrincat makes the pass to Strome, who finds Kane for an easy tap in goal. This is a prime example of why Davidson MUST keep Kane around for the rebuild. Kane never stops teaching the game, and who else would you want young players to learn from a hockey genius. Kane may see the game better than anyone who has ever played the game.
03/06/2022 Vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
Chicago would lose to the Lighting 6-3 in this game, but Kane would at least give the fans a goal to talk about. Kane would receive a pass from Brandon Hagel coming over the blueline. Kane had plenty of time to rear back and let his wrist shot go, an absolute rocket that would blast past Vasilevskiy’s glove right into the cookie jar. This is just a beauty of a wrist shot, and it beats the best goalie in the NHL.
11/01/2021 Vs. Ottawa
Kane’s hat trick goal
Kane would add the perfect nightcap to the Blackhawk’s first win that took the second month of the season to start just to get into the win column because of horrendous coaching, but I digress on that. Kane would put the entire franchise on his back, scoring a hat trick. His third and final goal was just a thing of beauty. Kane absolutely busts his tale off coming from behind the play before receiving a pass in his skates from Kubalik. Kane kicked the puck to his stick with a man draped on him without losing any speed. Kane then uses his leg to sheld off the defender’s stick, sliding the puck between the legs of Murray. Maybe it was the first win of the season or the fact I was in the stands. This goal is just a pure work of art.
This season didn’t have the insane Bobby Orr-like goal that Kane Scored versus the Canadians a few years back, but it was full of some beautiful goals. Patrick Kane will never fail to entertain the fans on the ice.
