PATRICK KANE had a couple of shots that simply could not be stopped. Just like the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago extended its NHL-record season-opening points streak to 22 games Sunday when Kane scored the tying goal on a power play with 2:02 left in regulation and the Blackhawks earned an extra point when the star forward scored the only goal in a shootout of a 2-1 win over the host Detroit Red Wings. "Just amazing what's going on," Kane said. Corey Crawford was perfect in the shootout and finished with 32 saves to help Chicago win a ninth straight game.

PATRICK KANE, Kyle Turris, James vanRiemsdyk. Get used to the names because one of them will be a Flyer by tonight. There is little chance the Flyers would trade down in the draft unless a team is willing to part with a quality, established player who will not only have an immediate impact this season, but for years to come. Just who they pick is going to depend on Chicago. The Blackhawks, as of last word, are still said to be leaning toward Kane, a smallish forward with a lot of skill.

After reiterating his innocence following a brief court appearance, Chicago Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane became emotional as he made the short walk back to his lawyer's office yesterday. Flanked by his parents, Patrick Sr. and Donna Kane, and attorney Paul Cambria, Kane became teary-eyed as a reporter asked about the emotional toll he is under facing misdemeanor assault, theft and harassment charges that he and his cousin beat up a cabdriver over a fare. Kane, 20, and his cousin James Kane, 21, pleaded not guilty during a brief arraignment before Buffalo judge Thomas Amodeo.

The attorney for a Buffalo, N.Y., cab driver who was the target of an alleged beating by Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane says he thinks Sunday's incident was blown out of proportion. "There was a dispute over the fee and it just kind of escalated from there," Andrew LoTempio told WGN radio in Chicago yesterday. "It was not really a robbery. That is probably a large distortion of what happened. " Asked if the case would end up as a felony, he said: "Absolutely not. " "I think we should be able to work things out," he added.

Center Claude Giroux, who leads the Flyers with 29 points in 38 games, was named to his fourth NHL All-Star team on Wednesday. "It's a great honor," he said after an optional practice in Voorhees. "We have a lot of good players on this team, and to be the one going, there's a lot of pride and I'm pretty excited to go. " Someone asked Giroux if he had seen the all-star jerseys and told him the colors resemble those of the Flyers' archrivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins. "Oh, that's great," Giroux said sourly, sarcasm dripping The all-star tournament will be held in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 31. It will consist of three games played in a three-on-three format.

The Buffalo, N.Y., cabdriver involved in the arrest of Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane reportedly didn't have a valid driver's license at the time of the incident. The Buffalo News, citing state Department of Motor Vehicles records, reported that 62-year-old Jan Radecki has had a cab license in Buffalo since 1996, but that his driver's license was revoked 10 years ago after he pleaded guilty to drunken driving. Radecki's attorney declined to comment about the license but said the cabbie went to Alcoholics Anonymous and no longer drinks.

CHICAGO - When Rocky Wirtz took over the Chicago Blackhawks 6 years ago, they were among the worst teams in the NHL. Fast forward to yesterday, when the owner mingled with fans and friends hours after the Blackhawks flew home with the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons. It's been quite the turnaround, and the 60-year-old Wirtz thinks there is more to come. "I think we're going to see a lot of good years ahead of us," he said. It sure looks that way. Unlike in 2010, when the title-winning team underwent changes because of salary-cap issues, the Blackhawks will be able to bring back many of their top players next season when they try to become the first repeat Stanley Cup winner since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998.

Touch 'em all, Patrick Kane, you'll never score a bigger goal in your life. The Blackhawks winger beat Michael Leighton at 4:06 of the first overtime to give Chicago a 4-3 victory and its first Stanley Cup in 49 years. Leighton was hugging the post, but Kane's shot found its way past Leighton's long side from the left wing. There was some question whether it went in, for everybody except Kane. "I knew it was in right away," Kane said, "I can't believe this just happened.

Patrick Kane is still a teenager, yet the Chicago Blackhawks are already counting on him to spark their dormant offense for many years to come. His chance could come as early as next season. Kane, taken by the Blackhawks with the first pick of Friday's NHL draft, was introduced to Chicago yesterday. The 18-year-old player came to town with impressive scoring totals in junior hockey and the belief that he can put up similar numbers on the big stage. "He's going to be a great player for a long time in this organization," coach Denis Savard said of Kane, a Buffalo native, who threw out the first ball in last night's Cubs-Rockies game.

BOSTON - Patrick Kane already has one Stanley Cup-winning goal from 2010, along with the one that put the Chicago Blackhawks into the Finals this year. Can he imagine a second NHL title-clincher? "I think the stars would have to be aligned right for it to happen like that again," Kane said Sunday, a day before the Blackhawks take the ice in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals with a chance to win their second championship in four seasons. "I think the biggest thing is trying to help contribute any way I can, help this team get a win, especially the situation we're in," said Kane, who scored the winner in Game 6 against the Flyers in the 2010 Finals, and the one that eliminated the Los Angeles Kings in this year's Western Conference finals.
