And then Patrick Kane finally found the back of the net, first starting out with one goal in Game 4 against the L.A. Kings.

Kane now has four goals in the last two games.
Kane coming alive, offensively, is a very timely development for the Blackhawks, as they enter into the Stanley Cup Final against the big, bad and skilled Boston Bruins.
