Patrick Kane’s 700th point makes difference for Blackhawks vs. Predators
Patrick Kane gave Nashville Predators fans a few more reasons to boo him on Thursday.
The slick Chicago Blackhawks winger scored the game-winning goal and also had an assist as the Blackhawks beat the Predators 3-2 in regulation.
That game-winner also happened to be the 700th point of his career, and he’s just a bit more than a month older than 28:
This continues a trend of milestone moments to close out 2016. Not long ago, Jaromir Jagr took sole possession of second place on the NHL’s all-time scoring list. Evgeni Malkin scored a power-play goal to hit the 800-point mark on Tuesday.
In case you’re wondering, Kane hit 700 points in the 696th regular season game of his outstanding NHL career. He also has 121 points in 123 career postseason games. Number 88 now has 37 points in 38 games this season.
