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.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
