Chicago's Patrick Kane wins Conn Smythe Trophy as Stanley Cup playoff MVP

Monday, 06.24.2013 / 11:15 PM The Canadian Press

BOSTON - Patrick Kane saved his best for the Stanley Cup final, and his reward was the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

Kane led the Chicago Blackhawks in scoring with 19 points on nine goals and 10 assists, helping them earn their second championship in four years.

He had nine points in his final 10 playoff games.

"I think it speaks more for my team than myself, personally," said Kane.

Kane thrived once coach Joel Quenneville reunited him with linemates Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bickell.

"Playing with great players, it was the best year of my life just playing with these guys," said Kane.

The chemistry led to almost-instant offence. Kane scored twice in Game 5 and then was the decoy on Toews' Game 6 goal Monday night that got Chicago on the board.

He was on the ice for the tying goal with 1:16 left.
