Though only 21-years-old, winger Patrick Kane just cemented his status as a hero in Chicago. Kane scored the game-winning goal in overtime of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final giving the Blackhawks a 4-3 win over the Flyers. Kane went five-hole on Michael Leighton and began celebrating immediately though the refs had a delayed goal call. Once the call was confirmed, it was official and the Blackhawks won the Cup for the first time since 1961. Here’s the video of Patrick Kane’s game-winning goal that provided Chicago with the Stanley Cup:
After scoring the game-winner, Kane told NBC that scoring the game-winning goal in the Stanley Cup Final was a dream come true. Then, Kane encapsulated the feelings of all Blackhawks fans saying “I can’t believe this just happened … holy crap!” The brash youngster who’s made his share of head-turning comments then was told to be on his best behavior for the parade. His response? “Not a chance, not a chance!” Somehow I’m guessing Chicago fans wouldn’t have wanted to hear anything else.
