Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,
You can say Patrick Kane’s hockey career has been a wild ride, so it’s fitting the South Buffalo native opted for a trio of crazy rides Saturday.
To celebrate his day with the Stanley Cup, the Chicago Blackhawks winger toured Western New York in a limousine bus and emerged from a military humvee and a Zamboni holding hockey’s holy grail aloft for adoring fans to see.
“Any time you can come back to Buffalo and bring the Stanley Cup, it’s a great thing for me,” Kane said Saturday morning during a visit to the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.
From No. 1 overall draft pick to two-time Stanley Cup champion to Olympic silver medalist to Conn Smythe Trophy winner — and all by age 24 — Kane has become one of the biggest names in the NHL. Each player on the winning team gets the Cup for a 24-hour period and Kane made a big entrance with it at Hangar 907 in Niagara Falls.
