You decide: Better Kane backhander ... pass or goal?

Sunday, 03.17.2013 / 12:45 AM

Patrick Kane has had a flair for the dramatic since he entered the National Hockey League in the 2007-08 season as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks.

From his Stanley Cup winning goal in the 2010 Cup Final to his memorable "Superman goal" in the Breakaway Challenge at the 2012 NHL All-Star Skills Competition, Kane is a showman as well as one of the League's top scorers.

Not only did Kane beat Hiller to end the shootout, but he also assisted on both Chicago goals in regulation with a pair of slick backhand feeds to Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa -- including a spin-o-rama backhand feed on the one to Hossa in the second.

In October of 2011 against the Ducks, Kane carried the puck into the right circle, where he put on the brakes in front of Toni Lydman before wheeling backward and zipping a backhand pass through traffic in front of the crease to Marian Hossa streaking for the back side of the net for the goal.

On Saturday against Stars, Kane spun around Dallas rookie defenseman Brenden Dillon in the right faceoff circle before firing a 23-foot backhand that beat Richard Bachman to his short side for a spectacular goal.

So which Patrick Kane 360/backhand play was better? You decide!
