    Patrick Kane, we were waiting for you to finally score a goal or at very least get a point this Western Conference Final.

    Kane’s lack of production had become a sort of big deal heading into Game 3. And it didn’t take long for him to finally get on the board against the Ducks. Behold the no-look backhand score by the Buffalo native, which knotted the game at 1-1 late in the first period at the United Center.

    As we noted before the game, Kane hadn’t notched a point this series and wasn’t really all that effective 5-on-5. Unless Kane was nursing some sort of injury we didn’t know about, you knew he’d at least score ‘a’ goal or ‘a’ point this series.

    Kane’s home goals create quite a festive atmosphere in the United Center. He throws up his arms and “Chelsea Dagger” blares from the loudspeaker. The crowd goes crazy. At this stage of Kane’s career and the Blackhawks’ recent run of success, it feels like a spring ritual.
