Kane's sick game-winner: 'Showtime, Showtime'

By Mike Harrington

The Chicago Blackhawks won their series opener, 5-2, over the Minnesota Wild late Friday night  (thanks for that 9:45 ET start, NBC). And they did it after blowing a 2-0 lead through 40 minutes because Patrick Kane broke the tie with a ridiculous backhand winner.
