Patrick Kane Extends Point Streak, 600th NHL Point and MVP Talk

Like it or not Patrick Kane is continuing to grab NHL headlines, buy cialis thankfully this time for the right reasons.

Last night versus the Nashville Predators (thanks to an open net), recipe Kaner extended his franchise record streak and recorded his 600th NHL point and the Blackhawks dominated the Preds winning 4-1.

The Blackhawks were already up 3-1 in the third period and many wanted to see the streak continue. Luckily with 1:36 remaining, healing Kaner crushed a shot from inside the neutral zone.

It is hard to ignore that in 604 NHL games; Kaner now has 600 points, and is just 27 years old. This puts him sixth overall in points per game among active NHL players. Since his 23-game streak started he has 14 goals and 37 points. He is at the top of the NHL scoring race and it may make some stomachs turn but he is being mentioned for the Hart Trophy (NHL MVP) left and right.

You may think that, that conversation needs to stop based off of Kane’s legal issue at the beginning of the season. The investigation was closed early last month, and no formal charges were brought to Kane.

I am not going to say that when the news broke, I wasn’t one of the first people saying that Kane needed to be withheld until the investigation ran its course. Do I stand by that, I do.  Whatever happened happened and it is a serious issue in our society. However there are no moral clauses attached to awards in any of the major leagues. MVP, is the most valuable to his team and what Kane is doing is showcasing he is the most valuable to the Blackhawks at this time.
