“Kane Comes To Play Every Night”

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

Denis Savard fathered Patrick Kane’s style, so it’s no surprise that he loves the player like a son.

“You get to meet him, you get to know him, and you’re gonna love him like he’s your son or your brother. He’s a great kid. He’s done a lot of great things for Chicago,” says Savard, a 52-year-old Hall of Famer. “And I always remind people of this: Patrick Kane comes to play every night.”

For the first time since the Chicago Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup-winning season of 2009-10, Kane produced at better than a point-per-game rate in the 47 games he came to play in 2013. His 23 goals and 32 assists in this chopped-short season were good enough for fifth overall in NHL scoring — and Kane averaged at least 50 seconds less ice time per game (20:03) than the four guys ahead of him in the race.

While Chicago’s multidimensional captain, Jonathan Toews, has taken some heat this postseason for producing nary a goal and only three assists in the team’s first eight playoff contests, Kane’s output has maintained. No. 88 has eight in eight.

In my original reading I missed the word “style” in the first quoted line.  It made for a much more interesting piece…

See what can happen when a few letters or words are misplaced?

That’s how rumors get started.

Kane comes to play every night, except the nights he’s drinking too much, punching cabbies, or wearing his ballcap in bed after sex while being photographed. Oh, and also on the nights where he’s just a non-factor because he’s not a very hard-working, all-around player.

three years from now I’ll likely remember that as “During the playoffs, Patrick Kane looked adopted” and just remember his teen wolf beard and stupid mullet.
