There's little argument that Patrick Kane is among the best stickhandlers in the entire NHL. He has put that on display time and time again and has throughout the season as he remains well ahead of the pack in the NHL's scoring race. Against the Colorado Avalanche Sunday, he was showing off those immense puck skills again.
With the Chicago Blackhawks already ahead of Colorado 1-0 in the first period, Artemi Panarin dropped the puck to Kane who decided to do the rest himself.
The goal was Kane's 24th so far this season. That one put him second behind Jamie Benn in NHL goal scoring and opened up an eight-point lead on the Dallas Stars captain in overall scoring with his 61st point of the year.
Then Kane scored again to jump up into a tie with Benn thanks to a power-play snipe from the right faceoff circle.
Now the Blackhawks star is up to 62 points as of this writing and continues his pace to become a rare 100-point scorer in the NHL. Of the 44 games Kane has played in this year, he has been held off the score sheet just six times.
