Hawks' Kane Grabs Two Points En Route To Cup

News: Patrick Kane factored into both goals in Monday's Stanley Cup-clinching win over the Lightning, registering a goal and an assist.
Analysis: Patrick Kane entered Monday's Game 6 without a goal and only one assist in the Finals, but his insurance tally with just over five minutes remaining helped secure Chicago's third Cup in six years. The winger's regular season was cut short by a broken clavicle, but he turned in another highly productive year when healthy and figures to be among the league's best once again in the 2015-16 season.

Hawks' Kane Trying To Light the Lamp In Game 6

News: Patrick Kane is still looking for his first Stanley Cup Finals goal this season as the series heads into Game 6 on Monday night, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane has only one assist in the first five games and that came in Game 4 at home. He last scored a goal in Game 6 against Anaheim in the Western Conference Finals on May 27. Tampa Bay has done a great job against Kane especially Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman. But Kane has excelled in elimination or series clinchers. In nine games in which the Hawks either faced elimination or had a chance to clinch a series (or both) in the past two postseasons, Kane has scored 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) and is a plus-10. He's scored at least one point in each of those games.

Blackhawks Shuffle Kane And Forward Lines

News: Patrick Kane, who has failed to put a shot on goal in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals, is expected to be moved off Jonathan Toews' line as the Blackhawks look to generate more offense in Game 3, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane is expected to be moved to a line with Brad Richards and Kris Versteeg while Toews gets placed with Marian Hossa and Brandon Saad. While playing with Toews in general certainly yields more scoring upside, in this case the Lightning has been able to concentrate its pair of shutdown blueliners - Victor Hedman and Anton Stralman - almost exclusively on the Hawks' top line. Kane could actually see a little more elbow room with the Blackhawks spreading out their best talent.

Hawks' Kane: No Shots Saturday, No Points In Final

News: Patrick Kane was held without a shot Saturday in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final and has now gone without a point in two games this series.
Analysis: He hadn't been held without a shot in a game since Jan. 16. But don't expect this quiet streak to last long -- he's too skilled and far to dynamic to be held down for long.

Patrick Kane, RW, CHI Blackhawks' Kane To Join Toews On Top Line

Patrick Kane

Blackhawks' Kane To Join Toews On Top Line

News: Patrick Kane will be deployed with Jonathan Toews on the top line during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane and Toews ended up finishing the Western Conference Finals victory over the Ducks as linemates, and coach Joel Quenneville will opt to keep his two superstars together in an effort to generate more offensive firepower. Quenneville could end up shaking things up as the series progresses, but no matter whether Kane and Toews skate together or separately, the Blackhawks' fortunes will likely rise or fall with the performance of both players.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Dishes Out Trio Of Assists In Game 7

News: Patrick Kane dished out three assists in Saturday's Game 7 win over the Ducks.
Analysis: That's back-to-back multi-point games for Patrick Kane, who is up to 20 points this postseason -- second-most in the NHL. The 26-year-old was a machine in the Western Conference Final, cranking out three goals and seven points to help the Blackhawks advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the third time in six years. With 10 goals, three game-winners, 50 shots on goal and a plus-6 rating this postseason, look for the ultimate playoff performer to play a huge role in the final series against the Lightning.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Nabs Game-Winner, Assist In Game 6

News: Patrick Kane supplied an assist and tallied the game-winning goal in Wednesday's Game 6 triumph over the Ducks.
Analysis: The goal was a thing of beauty, as Patrick Kane danced past the Ducks' Matt Beleskey and found an open space behind goalie Frederik Andersen to give the Blackhawks a 3-0 lead. Kane has scored three times this series and has 10 goals overall in 16 playoff contests.

Blackhawks' Kane Comes Up Big In Game 4

News: Patrick Kane registered the game-tying goal in third period of Saturday's eventual 5-4 double-overtime triumph over the Ducks.
Analysis: Minutes after the Ducks raced back from a 3-1 deficit to take a 4-3 lead, Patrick Kane sent the United Center crowd into a frenzy when he finished off a power-play feed from linemate Brad Richards with 7:21 left to play. The 26-year-old has been spectacular in the Blackhawks' 15 playoff contests, recording nine goals and six assists.

Patrick Kane

Kane Extends Goal Streak As 'Hawks Sweep

News: Patrick Kane extended his goal streak to five games and his point streak to seven Thursday, potting a goal and a power-play assist in a Game 4 victory against Minnesota.
Analysis: After a broken clavicle ended his regular season early, there were questions about what the 'Hawks would get out of Patrick Kane come playoff time. No more. He's only missed the scoresheet one time -- Game 3 against Nashville -- and suddenly is only a single point behind Corey Perry for the playoff scoring lead, though Perry's played three fewer games.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Scores Lone Game 3 Goal

News: Patrick Kane scored the game's only goal Tuesday against the Wild, with his first-period power-play tally holding up for a 1-0 win and 3-0 series lead.
Analysis: It was his only shot on goal of the game, but it was the only one he needed. Patrick Kane's now on a six-game playoff point streak, and he's scored goals in four straight contests. He'll look to make it five Thursday in Minnesota as the Blackhawks go for the sweep.

Patrick Kane

Blackhawks' Kane Pots Two More In Win

News: Patrick Kane potted two goals -- one on an empty net -- in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Wild.
Analysis: Patrick Kane has been red-hot all playoffs as he's tallied at least a point in seven of the club's eight games thus far. With four goals and five assists in the postseason, the 26-year-old figures to be as reliable an offensive source as there comes the rest of the way.

Patrick Kane

Blackhawks' Kane Notches Two Points In Game 6 Win

News: Patrick Kane scored his second goal of the playoffs and added an assist in Saturday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Predators.
Analysis: That's a three-game point streak for Patrick Kane, who has racked up seven points in six playoff games. Skating on the second line, the 26-year-old has been a factor every game, firing 19 shots on goal and registering a steady plus-3 rating. With 39 goals and 98 points in 99 career NHL playoff games, you expect more of Kane's magic in Round 2 and beyond.

Blackhawks' Kane Looking Sharp In Postseason

News: Patrick Kane assisted on the Blackhawks' lone goal in Thursday's Game 5 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: After being sidelined for seven weeks with a broken clavicle, Patrick Kane hasn't missed a beat since returning to action for the Blackhawks' first-round series. He's provided a point in all but one of the five games thus far, netting a goal, four assists, and 18 shot attempts. That per-game production is almost exactly in line with what he provided prior to the injury, when he was considered one of the leading candidates for the Hart Trophy. Daily game players can probably feel confident building their rosters around Kane throughout the postseason.

Hawks' Kane Productive In Return

News: Patrick Kane set up two goals in Wednesday's Game 1 win over Nashville. It was his first game since Feb. 24 after suffering a broken clavicle.
Analysis: And with the healthy return of Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks are now an early front-runner to go all the way in a quest for their third Stanley Cup in six years. Kane recovered from his injury in seven weeks -- five weeks earlier than the initial 12-week prognosis -- so look for him to continue scoring with regularity as this series marches on.

Hawks' Kane On Track To Play Wednesday

News: Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed Tuesday that Patrick Kane (clavicle) will play in Wednesday's playoff opener against the Predators, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. The Blackhawks are no longer listing him on long-term injured reserve.
Analysis: Patrick Kane, who was cleared for full participation Monday, is thus slated to suit up for the Hawks on Wednesday for the first time since Feb. 24, when he suffered a broken left clavicle. Prior to sustaining the injury, Kane had recorded 64 points in 61 games for the Hawks.

Blackhawks' Kane Cleared By Doctors

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was cleared for full participation by the Blackhawks' team physician.
Analysis: Patrick Kane appeared to be trending toward a return for Game 1 of the Blackhawks' first-round matchup with the Predators after taking part in full-contact practice Monday, and the positive report from the doctor only adds further optimism about his status. The winger remains listed on the Blackhawks' long-term injured reserve list, but that appears to be only a formality at this point. Given his participation in line rushes and on the top power-play unit at Monday's practice, Kane looks healthy and ready for activation ahead of Wednesday's postseason opener. It's quite the improbable development after the broken clavicle was initially expected to sideline him through late May.

Patrick Kane

Blackhawks' Kane Could Play Wednesday

News: Coach Joel Quenneville indicated Monday that Patrick Kane (upper body) could play in Game 1 against the Predators if he completes another practice successfully Tuesday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane was cleared for contact Monday and skated in his familiar spot on the Blackhawks' second line, which represents another major step forward in his recovery. While his status for Game 1 remains undetermined, it appears quite likely that he'll be able to play if he makes it through Tuesday's practice without any complications. Even if team doctors aren't willing to give him the green light to play in Game 1, Kane looks poised to join the team at some point during the series, giving a huge morale and personnel boost to the Blackhawks early in the postseason.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Cleared For Contact

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was cleared for contact Monday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: While that is a major step forward for Patrick Kane, who practiced Monday without wearing a non-contact jersey, at this stage the forward is unsure of his status for Wednesday's playoff opener against the Preds.

Patrick Kane

Kane Practices With 'Hawks Monday

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was on the ice for Monday's practice, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Of particular note is that Patrick Kane was not sporting a non-contact jersey, so it appears as though he'll absorb contact at Monday's practice, which represents a positive indicator with regard to his status as Wednesday's playoff opener against the Preds approaches.

4/12/2015

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Probable for Game 1 Wednesday

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) is expected to be cleared for full contact for Monday practice and is probable for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs first round on Wednesday, Pat Boyle of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane had been absorbing some contact in practice over the weekend, but this has been the most optimistic of the reports for his return. It seems the original timeline that had Kane returning from a broken clavicle in May (about the Stanley Cup conference finals) might have been on the conservative side. It still would be a surprise to see Kane on the ice for Game 1, but Boyle is pretty tuned into the Blackhawks. Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville had been indicating recently that Kane was ahead of schedule in terms of his recovery period.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Progressing

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was able to absorb some contact over the weekend, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: While Lazerus suggests that Patrick Kane may be nearing a return, he speculates that a potential "Game 3-ish" return is a more likely scenario for the forward than the Hawks' playoff opener Wednesday against the Preds. Look for some added clarity with regard to Kane's playing status as soon as Monday's practice.

Patrick Kane

Another Step Forward For Blackhawks' Kane

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was attempting slap shots during Tuesday's practice, a sign he's taken another step forward in the recovery process, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane had previously been limited to firing off wrist shots during practices, but the fact that he was taking one-timers during Tuesday's session suggests he's progressed further from the broken clavicle. At this point, the question isn't whether or not Kane will beat the 12-week recovery timetable initially outlined for him Feb. 24; it's how much sooner than the 12 weeks he'll be ready to go. Kane's next barrier to cross will be taking part in full-contact practice, which could come as soon as April 13. A return in the first or second round of the postseason may yet be feasible.

Patrick Kane

Blackhawks' Kane Could Be Back For First Round

News: Coach Joel Quenneville acknowledged Sunday that Patrick Kane (upper body) could make his return to the lineup during the first round of the playoffs, Paul Skrbina of the Chicago Tribune reports. "Tough to say," Quenneville said, regarding a potential first-round return for Kane. "Medical clearance is the hurdle...that's where it's at."
Analysis: The club line had previously been that Patrick Kane remains on a 12-week recovery timetable, which would prevent the star winger from playing until mid-to-late May, or the third round of the playoffs. However, after Kane was able to resume skating with the team last week and participated in Sunday's morning session, it appears Quenneville has softened his stance on the matter. Kane can't be activated from long-term during the remainder of the regular season due to salary-cap restrictions, but if he continues to show improved condition over the next few days, the 25-year-old will generate more optimism that he might be able to make an early postseason return.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Not Eligible To Return Before Playoffs

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) will not be eligible to return from the Blackhawks' injured reserve list until the postseason due to salary-cap restrictions, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Those hoping Wednesday's reports that Patrick Kane had resumed practicing with the team would signal a forthcoming return for the star winger can table those hopes for now. Kane is still facing a 12-week recovery timetable from the broken clavicle he suffered Feb. 24, putting him on tap for a return in May. There isn't much incentive in stashing Kane in season-long leagues, and his likely absence for at least the first round of the postseason suggests he's a sketchy choice in postseason pools, too.

Blackhawks' Kane Says Timetable Hasn't Changed

News: Though he was able to get in a non-contact practice Wednesday, Patrick Kane said that his 12-week recovery timetable hasn't changed, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville also reiterated as much, but Patrick Kane still seems optimistic about beating that timetable after he was able to resume practicing far earlier than most anticipated. Since Kane was placed on long-term injured reserve back in February and has a $10.5 million annual salary, it seems unlikely that the cap-strapped Blackhawks would even have the capacity to activate the winger before the end of the regular season, even if he was deemed fully healthy at that point. Instead, the Blackhawks will simply hope to have Kane back at some point in the playoffs, though it remains up in the air how early his return might come, if at all.
