After getting big lift from Kane in opener, Blackhawks look to go up 2-0 against Minnesota

CHICAGO - It wasn't the first time the Chicago Blackhawks saw a spectacular goal from Patrick Kane. Yet, they were still amazed a day later.

Kane scored twice in the third period on Friday night to lift the Blackhawks to a 5-2 victory over Minnesota. But it was his dash through the Wild zone on the tiebreaking goal that had his teammates still in awe Saturday.

Brent Seabrook says it was "just amazing to see that goal" and that players were "laughing a little bit" when they watched the video.

Game 2 is Sunday in Chicago, and the Blackhawks are in position to take a commanding lead thanks to a late charge that started with one memorable goal.

The Wild had scored twice early in the third to tie it 2-2 when Kane delivered.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
