Philadelphia, PA (WKBW.com) Patrick Kane said Wednesday morning that it's every kids dream to win a Stanley Cup Championship. On Wednesday night, Kane turned that dream into a reality. The South Buffalo native scored the series clinching goal in overtime to capture the Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks in a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
Kane scored the winner 4:10 into the extra period, when he snuck one past Philadelphia goaltender Michael Leighton. There was a delayed reaction to the goal, and a quick review to make sure it went in, but Kane knew it was good as he celebrated the victory with his teammates. The goal ended a hard fought series, and earned Chicago a Stanley Cup Championship for the first time since 1961.
In an interview with CBC shortly after the victory Kane said "I'd like to shout out to Buffalo. I love you guys, my hometown. I had a group of buddies make their way here (to Philadelphia), my five family members are here, I love them. We just won the cup, it's unreal"
The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup 4 games to 2 over the Philadelphia Flyers.
