Meet Miss P!
By Rich Lindbloom
There are rare moments in life when the stars align, those nights when you fill those inside straights. Remember Patrick Kane’s hat trick in Game 6 against Vancouver on May 11, 2009 – that’s what I’m talking about! PK, my main dawg. It helped seal a wild, 7-5 victory over the vile, loathsome, hated Canucks in the waning moments of the third period.
Kaner scooped the puck up along the left boards and headed unimpeded towards Lu’s net. Kane rifled a wicked back hander over Luongo’s right shoulder to vault the Hawks into the Conference Finals against another group of mutts, the Wings. That game would probably rank third on my all-time favorite list, just behind “The Edmonton” game on Dec 23, 2007, and the first game I ever went to back in the early 60’s against the Leafs.
While not on par with the aforementioned games, Monday’s game at the United Center, against a desperate LA King squad, was one of those that send you home smiling.
