Comcast SportsNet will be re-airing Blackhawks Classics until the NHL lockout comes to an end. Tune in tonight at 7:00 p.m. to catch the 2010 Stanley Cup clincher when Patrick Kane scored the game-winning goal in overtime and the Blackhawks took the Cup back home to Chicago.

On June 9, 2010, the Blackhawks were clinging to a 3-2 lead in the series and in Game 6 against the Flyers as the Stanley Cup Finals looked to be coming to an end late in regulation.

But the Flyers' Scott Hartnell delivered a clutch goal with 3:59 left to play, setting the stage for Kane's heroics in overtime.

Just over four minutes into the extra period, Kane sent a wrister past goalie Michael Leighton. Those in attendance at the game and watching on TV were stunned for a brief moment, as nobody could tell for sure if Kane's shot had gone in.

But Kane knew, and he immediately started rejoicing with teammates on the ice as the Flyers skated off in awe.

Kane's game-winner snapped a 47-year Stanley Cup drought for the Blackhawks and ensured his name would live on forever in NHL lore.

--The Blackhawks won all three games played at the United Center in the 2010 Stanley Cup Final.
