Way to Go Chicago Blackhawks!
Tuesday, 06.19.2012 Kane OT goal breaks Hawks Stanley Cup drought. The Chicago Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup, won with a 4-3 victory on Patrick Kane‘s overtime goal 4:06 into the extra session of Game 6 Wednesday at Wachovia Center.
Thanks to Kane’s surprising goal, Antti Niemi‘s resiliency and an overall group effort to recover when the weight of the hockey world felt like it was crashing down on them, the Blackhawk’s all got to lift the Stanley Cup over their heads and celebrate.
Could the Hawks really celebrate? Video replays showed the puck went into the right side of the net, going through Flyers goalie Michael Leighton (37 saves).
“I knew it was in right away,” Kane said. “I just tried to take off and book it to the other end and try to sell the celebration. It was crazy. It’s unbelievable to be a part of this.”
