Jonathan Toews rushed up the ice and was denied by Jonathan Bernier before finding Erik Gustafsson at the hashmarks of the left faceoff circle. The defenseman sent the puck to a wide-open Kane near the net to deliver the game-winner with 2:18 remaining in the three-on-three extra session.
Kane tallied his first goal during the second period to give the Blackhawks a 4-1 lead heading into the intermission. He snipped a shot past Jimmy Howard on the blocker side to extend his point streak to 19 consecutive games.
Kane has scored 350 regular-season goals and 50 playoff tallies. He has 38 goals and 92 points in 60 games this season, and he’s on pace to break his career-high of 106 points during the 2015-16 campaign.
An earlier version of this story misidentified Kane’s career goal total at 400. The NHL interprets a “career” total as only the regular season and separates it from a player’s playoff total. According to the league’s official stats, Kane has 350 career goals and 50 playoff goals. Second City Hockey regrets this error.
