Patrick Kane goes 1-on-4 to beat the Flames for a goal

The Calgary Flames had three players and the goaltender back to defend, yet that wasn’t enough to stop Patrick Kane on Tuesday night. The Chicago Blackhawks winger sped his way through the defense for what’s easily his most impressive goal of the 2016-17 season so far:

Now, to be fair, this isn’t particularly great defense by the Flames. Nobody takes away Kane’s shooting angle, and the forward backchecking isn’t able to even get a stick in to stop the reigning MVP from taking a shot. He’s able to comfortably fire a wrist shot that Brian Elliott cannot stop.

The goal put the Blackhawks up, 1-0, as they look to improve upon a 5-3-1 record. Kane now has three goals and seven assists after one period in his 10th game of the season, putting him on pace for his fifth straight season with at least one point per game.

Richard Panik and Artem Anisimov might stop scoring so many goals, but Kane will be sure to help make up for it. He was due, anyway.
