Patrick Kane was the only one who knew the Chicago Blackhawks had won the Stanley Cup.
Kane snuck the puck past Michael Leighton 4:06 into overtime and stunned Philadelphia to lift Chicago to a 4-3 overtime win in Game 6 on Wednesday night for their first championship since 1961.
No one but the Blackhawks appeared to realize what was going on for a few frozen moments. Kane and his linemates knew the puck had found the side of the net. The goal light never went on, but that didn’t stop most of the Blackhawks from storming the ice and mobbing each other in celebration.
“I tried to sell the celebration a little bit,” Kane said. “Everyone came down, and I think some of the guys were still kind of iffy to see if the puck was in the net.”
