The Chicago Blackhawks kept their point streak alive on Sunday night with a victory over the Montreal Canadiens, and Patrick Kane added another highlight reel play to his already sterling career resume.
Late in the second period of the game, Kane got the puck in the middle of the offensive zone, and even as two Canadiens defenders pinched in to stop him, he made one of the more athletic plays a hockey fan will see as he scored while falling down to give his team the lead:
Jonathan Toews set the entire play up with his aggressive backcheck to free the puck and get it to Kane, but the superstar winger did the rest. He not only beat out Jeff Petry to the middle of the ice, but he somehow had the wherewithal to fire a gorgeous shot past Al Montoya and into the goal while falling down.
The goal is certainly among the best that Kane has ever scored in his NHL career, with his spinorama goal against the Dallas Stars in 2013 is at least comparable in terms of sheer athleticism and awesomeness.
