Patrick Kane hadn't scored a shootout goal all season. That changed Sunday.

After Jonathan Toews scored in the first round and Patrick Sharp missed in the second, Patrick Kane put this shot by Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask in the third round of the shootout to give the Blackhawks a 3-2 win in the Stanley Cup Final rematch.

"I just tried to slow down and see what he gave me," Kane told NBC's Pierre McGuire after the game. "Johnny scored blocker and Sharpie missed glove, so just kind of a quick shot and luckily enough it beat him."

Sunday's win was the Hawks' fifth in the shootout this season. They've struggled after regulation, though. Their 11 losses in overtime and shootouts tie for the second-most in the NHL.

"We haven't been that good in overtime or shootouts, so it's nice to win a game like that," Kane told McGuire. "Obviously not the best 4-on-3 in overtime, but we can improve on some things and it's always nice to win a shootout when you're struggling in that area."
