Patrick Kane was not having much of an impact in the postseason before the Blackhawks' final two games against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Final.
Going into the fourth game of that series, Kane had scored two goals throughout the postseason, and he looked lost much of the time. Instead of carrying the puck in the offensive zone and taking advantage of slower defensemen with his stick-handling and quickness, he was regularly getting his pocket picked or simply losing the puck.
However, when he batted a puck into the net past Jonathan Quick in Game 4, Kane was visibly relieved. The Blackhawks won that game 3-2 and came home with a chance to end the series.
Kane had no interest in giving the Kings a chance to return to Los Angeles for the sixth game. He scored the overtime winner to complete a hat trick as he finished off a two-on-one with Toews.
If Kane can continue to stay hot, it will be that much harder for the Bruins to beat the Blackhawks.
