Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane hit a personal milestone against Ottawa Sunday – and it was only natural his teammate and fellow superstar Jonathan Toews was involved in the achievement.
Given how linked-at-the-hip Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews have been since arriving in Chicago and helping deliver a pair of Stanley Cup champions to the Blackhawks, it was only fitting Kane reached a personal milestone with the assistance of the Hawks’ captain.
Kane and Toews collaborated on Chicago’s first goal of their game Sunday night against the Senators, with the former starting the rush into Ottawa’s zone before assisting on the latter’s second goal of the season:
Kane’s 500th point came in the 523rd regular-season game of his career. Because Toews has been sidelined more often over the course of their eight years in Chicago, he’s a little ways away from his 500th point (446 points in 492 games), but it’s a safe bet that, when he does get there, Kane will be involved as well.
