NASCAR driver Danica Patrick had never been to a Blackhawks game at the United Center before. But after her first shot in "Shoot the Puck", this game will surely be one she will never forget. 

Patrick participated in "Shoot the Puck" on Tuesday night in the Blackhawks' playoff opener against the Minnesota Wild. She looked like a natural on the ice as she found the back of the net on her first try, advancing her to the final round before her last shot swerved to the left of the net.

Patrick won the pole position at the Daytona 500 this year, becoming the first woman ever to hold a pole position in a Sprint Cup race.  Outside of the race track, Patrick is known for her GoDaddy.com commercials. 

"Shoot the Puck" has had no shortage of memorable moments. From John Belushi's awkward interview to a fan's confession of love to former CSN reporter Sarah Kustok, this contest is always one to watch.
