The NHL's reigning Art Ross Trophy winner, Patrick Kane, scored one of the most impressive goals of this young hockey season on Sunday night.
In the second period of the Blackhawks-Canadiens contest at the United Center, Kane managed to deke between two Habs defenders before sniping top corner while falling to the ice. The bit of offensive magic was made possible by a great forecheck from Kane's teammate and Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, who successfully forced a turnover in the offensive zone just seconds before delivering the assist on the highlight-reel goal.
Not only was the tally pretty exquisite, but it was also crucial. The goal wound up providing the winning margin for Chicago's 3-2 win, marking just the second time so far this season that a team has beaten the Canadiens in regulation.
