Patrick Kane missed a significant chunk of the end of the regular season, and there was worry he would be rusty in his first game back in Game 1.
Well, there's no need to worry.
Kane broke a 2-2 tie with a powerful shot on a breakaway, putting the puck past Blues goalie Ryan Miller for his first goal of the playoffs.
It was a wild first period that saw a total of five goals. Kane's sent thing to the first intermission in the Hawks' favor.
