Cons: Patrick Kane

It is so fitting that this guy plays for the Chicago Blackhawks. He just looks so slimy and evil. It is very reminiscent of the 90’s when you had guys like Jeremy Roenick, Dirk Graham or Chris Chelios to hate.

Of course the fact that he has been a Blues killer over his career does not help his case. He continued that in this game.

The first goal was not all that great. It was a wrister from just outside the slot and Allen was too deep in his net. Nevertheless, it was a scorer’s goal that happens just by putting pucks on net.

Patrick Kane was not quite done there either. His second goal was another scorer’s touch. He managed to wait for the most opportune moment, letting the scrambling defender slide by and take Allen with him and then fire it into the top corner.

Blues fans will argue that both could, and perhaps should, have been saved. In this instance, I cannot put up too much of an argument.

That said, Kane continued his ways of jabbing knives into the Blues. He ended this game with two goals and three points.

Kane made our captain look silly by faking him out of his jock and almost scored on that. His last goal put the fear of God into fans, thinking they were watching another two goal lead evaporate. Thankfully, that never came to pass.
