Patrick Kane scored his 400th career goal, Kevin Lankinen made a career-high 44 saves, and the Chicago Blackhawks rounded off a prosperous February in style, defeating the Detroit Red Wings 7-2 on Sunday night.
Bouncing back beautifully from a 5-3 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night, the Blackhawks closed out a 9-3-1 February with the Blackhawks third win in four games.
The 32-year-old Kane held the puck, but waited for the charging Detroit defenseman Filip Hronek, who slipped past him, before beating Thomas Greiss on the stick side for his 11th goal of the season.
Kane raised both arms over his head after becoming the 100th NHL player to score 400 goals. He also became the fourth player in Blackhawks’ history to do so, joining Bobby Hull, Steve Larmer, and Stan Mikita.
Kane is a 32-year-old, in the middle of his 14th NHL season, and is seven games away from No. 1,000 for his career. On top of that, he’s played in 136 postseason games.
And not only is he not showing any signs of slowing down at this point in his career, but Kane is having his best offensive season ever.
