Watch Patrick Kane score on a helpless Cory Schneider during Swiss shootout

Dec 27, 2012, 5:33 PM EDT

The battle between the Blackhawks and Canucks continues to rage on. Instead of on NHL ice, this next slice of one of the league’s best rivalries occurs during a shootout in a Swiss National League game. The combatants? Chicago’s Patrick Kane and Vancouver’s eventual No. 1 goalie Cory Schneider.

Kane, suiting up for EHC Biel, got a chance to flex his deking muscles in such a way he had to have made Schneider, playing for Ambri-Piotta, fall asleep. Check out the video here courtesy of HockeyWebCaster on YouTube.

If only they could’ve polished it off with an Oom-pah band rendition of “Chelsea Dagger” for good measure. Schneider might want to toss a poke-check in for good measure the next time these two see each other in the skills competition. The “frozen like a statue” move doesn’t seem to work.

      As a rabid Canuck fan … this video just made me miss hockey even more. Can’t hate something if it aint worth hating, (Fkn Kane and his sweet sweet hands, and head fakes, and shoulder fakes…)

      I need to see hockey this year.

        Just watch the Burrows famous “bite” incident and then get lost. “Nauks fans are ass*&les.

        @ kitshky You’re so right , no matter how much of a heated rivalry it may be i’d love to see the sedin sisters toy with Corey Crawford all night long if it meant watching NHL again this year

    Man what is with sports leagues overseas and making all their jerseys look like Nascar firesuits?

    I hope the day never comes when jerseys over here are emblazoned with all those sponsor logos.

      It’s coming. I think the NBA is going to start it next year.

        Quoting the bleacher report? That garbage is barely middle school paper quality.

    martysbetter, don’t be surprise if it gets to that. You might see it sooner than you think as teams look to increase revenue through ads. It might start with one logo on the helmet, then the jersey, pants etc…, there was a time when the ice and boards were void of all publicity.

    Kane is a puke and his little “tinker bell” moves mean nothing! Not to mention the fact that Cory Schneider is the undisputed #2 goaltender in the NHL today, having just usurped the Michelin Man himself and leaving the Canuckle management with a “Lehman Brothers” sized headache! (ie: actually Luongo’s already been traded :) ) … anyway, here it is again for those that missed this the last time …

    1) Jonathan Quick
    2) Cory Schneider
    3) Ryan Miller
    4) Henrik Lundqvist
    5) Carey Price

    28) Ilya “Tovaritch” Bryzgalov
    29) Miikka Kiprusoff
    30) Roberta ($$$) Luongo

      Schneider is good; no doubt, but to call him the second best goalie in the league is a huge stretch. He’s in the same boat with Rask; although his best season was 45 games compared to Schneider’s 33. Schneider has 68 NHL games under his belt. there is NO way you can call him the undisputed 2md best goalie in the league. There would be a far better argument for Rask and as a boston fan; right now that’s absurd. He could be in the next few years as could Schneider. it’s there for both of them. You wouldn’t have put Quick on that list before last year and probably not lundquist either. Miller has been olympic miller in a few years, and Price can be that good, but sometimes just isn’t 5-8 is about right for him – ages excluded. I’ll give you leaving off Thomas who has been the best for 3 of the last 5 years; one of those years he had a torn hip; which is why Rask played because he’s nuts and not playing (but none of them are…) but HOW can you leave Rinne out of the Top 5? an argument could be made for Fleury as well. top 5 no order; Rinne, Quick, lundquist, fleury howard. Price, miller, Schneider bring up the next 3. Don’t get me wrong; he is good and along with Rask have the potential to be the best in the league, but less than 70 games is not enough. see andrew raycroft.

        No way Fleury is anywhere near the top 5. He is overrated by analysts who measure a goalie’s play based on the number of wins he has. Fleury has all of those wins because of a high powered offense and the lack of a legit back-up. I personally would take both of your team’s goalies over Fleury. The man got outplayed by Ilya Bryzgalov in the playoffs…. that’s sad.

        My Top five would be:

        Thomas (only because he is taking a year off and is older than my father, otherwise #2 or #3)
