The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League. They are tanking hard for Connor Bedard but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a win every now and again.

They got one of those on Friday night with an overtime victory over the Ottawa Senators in Canada’s capital. The win came by a final score of 4-3. It was an outstanding way to head into the weekend as everyone is feeling good about themselves.

All eyes were on Patrick Kane in this one as the trade deadline is drawing closer and closer. He isn’t having a good season at all and needs to pick it up if the Hawks want to maximize his value. He did just that in this game against the Sens.

Kane scored two goals to help Chicago earn this comeback victory on the road. He now has 11 goals on the season. He is still putting up some points but nothing like what we are used to seeing from him in a typical season of his.

The Chicago Blackhawks have a big Patrick Kane decision to make soon.

A lot of it has to do with the fact that the team is very bad. He doesn’t play with good players on a regular basis anymore and that has hurt his production. If/when he gets traded to a contender, don’t be surprised if he starts lighting up the league again.

Showtime isn’t done being an elite player. He will bounce back once he is done with this miserable situation that he is in right now. The Chicago Blackhawks, as mentioned before, need to keep him on top of his game so he can keep scoring the way he was in this game.

This version of Patrick Kane can be a game-changer and that is what they want other teams to see in him. Having a monster game like this will do wonders for his confidence as the trade deadline is now just a few weeks away.

Kane and the Hawks are now done with this four-game Canadian road trip where this Ottawa game was the only one that they picked up a win.

Now, they will be at home on Sunday to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs for the second time in three games. Oddly enough, the Maple Leafs are a team that may consider making a big move for Kane as they try to win their first playoff series in over a decade.
