Here is Patrick Kane’s shootout goal from Wednesday’s Chicago-Minnesota game. The goal put the Blackhawks up 2-0 in penalty shots and clinched the game. It also might have been the slowest penalty shot in recorded history. Kane nearly comes to a standstill as he moved the puck back and forth in front of the goalie. Here’s how teammate Jonathan Toews described the shot. From the Toronto Star:
“It was awesome; it was sick. For the win, there’s a lot of pressure. It’s tough to go in thinking about what you want to do with all that riding on it. He made no mistakes. (It was) a big win for the boys and a little flash by P. Kane. It was pretty nice to watch.”
If you’re keeping score at home, this is a seventy-triple deke. I counted.
