Showtime In Chicago

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,

He danced through the Minnesota defense as they picked their poison between him and Patrick Sharp, dusting Ryan Suter and splitting Jonas Brodin and Kyle Brodziak — the Wild’s top two defensemen and one of their top shutdown forwards — before roofing a backhander over Ilya Bryzgalov to break a tie and unleash a deafening roar at the United Center.

As Kane raced to his teammates to celebrate, he twice appeared to yell, “Showtime!” — fitting, given the highlight-reel nature of the goal and his usual penchant for the dramatic.

“Did it look like I said that?” Kane said with a smile. “Sometimes I don’t even know what I’m saying. I was pretty pumped up after that one. You kind of get in your own little world. I don’t know. I don’t even know what I said, to be honest with you.”
