It's no secret what kind of impact Marian Hossa has had on the Blackhawks, who knew exactly what they were getting when they signed him to a 12-year contract in 2009.
Patrick Kane is human after all.
The Blackhawks needed to get back on track, needed to start finding chemistry in their lines and, most important, needed two points.
Patrick Kane knocked the puck out of the air and toward Artemi Panarin, who juked before finding some space and scoring the empty-net goal.
The names on the score sheet were different than usual, and that’s a good thing.
