Lots of people believe Sidney Crosby is the best there is in NHL hockey, but Patrick Kane just might be more clutch in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Kane tallied 3 points last night, including a OT game-winning finish to even the Western Conference quarters series with St Louis at 2-2.

Not bad. Hat-trick winner that sends your squad to the Stanley Cup Finals! But, it gets better--->
I can only hope, if the Wild advance, that the Blackhawks aren't waiting there ready to square off again. Kane is deadly.
