Minnesota Wild vs. Chicago Blackhawks: Biggest Takeaways from 2nd-Round Series
Ann Heisenfelt/Associated Press

Patrick Kane made his magic happen once again for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Even though his team was outplayed for the large majority of the game by the surprising and hungry Minnesota Wild, Kane was not about to let an opportunity to win the game pass in overtime. Kane simply took advantage of an awkward bounce off the stanchion, made a quick forehand-backhand deke and roofed the puck over Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.

Game over. Series over.
