The Play Of Patrick Kane

12/06/2015 at 8:45am EST

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

It’s the longest point streak in history by an American (Kane said “that’s pretty cool, I’ll be honest.”) and has Kane tied with Bobby Hull for the longest point streak in Blackhawks history. Kane is four games from matching Sidney Crosby’s 2010 25-game streak, the NHL’s longest point streak since 1992-93.

“It’s pretty incredible what he’s doing now,” Parise said. “He’s one of those guys whenever he’s got the puck, you just expect something to happen. The puck follows him. He puts himself in a good spot in the offensive zone to get the puck always. He probably touches the puck in the offensive zone 35, 40 times a night. It’s unbelievable.”

What Parise loves about Kane is that “he’s not cheating. That’s the thing. People think he cheats for offense. I don’t think he does. He’s smart. He’s opportunistic. He anticipates plays better than anyone. It’s almost like he knows where the puck’s going to go, and that’s where he goes.

“Shocker, he gets the puck and makes a play. You see it, and he’s even getting better at it.”
