Stanley Cup Final

Flu sidelines Hawks' Kane for Game 3

Monday, 04.20.2009 / 8:14 PM / 2009 Playoffs Conference Quarterfinals

By NHL.com Staff

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane will miss Game 3 of the club's Western Conference Quarterfinal series with the Calgary Flames on Monday night due to the flu. Kane did not participate in the team's morning skate and won't be in the lineup when the 'Hawks attempt to take a 3-0 series lead at Pengrowth Saddledome.

The 20-year-old Kane registered 25 goals and 70 points during the regular season in helping the Blackhawks reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2002, and had one assist in two postseason games as Chicago won twice on home ice.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
