Found December 15, 2011 on The Victory Formation:

Rule 84.4 in the NHL rulebook governs regular season overtime shootouts, and the rules are largely the same as covered in Rule 24, penalty shots.  Here are the salient points:

He shall then place the puck on the center face-off spot and the player taking the shot will, on the instruction of the Referee (by blowing his whistle), play the puck from there and shall attempt to score on the goalkeeper. The puck must be kept in motion towards the opponent’s goal line and once it is shot, the play shall be considered complete. No goal can be scored on a rebound of any kind (an exception being the puck off the goal post or crossbar, then the goalkeeper and then directly into the goal), and any time the puck crosses the goal line or comes to a complete stop, the shot shall be considered complete.

Now let’s take a look at Kane’s shootout effort:



As you can see, Kane very nearly comes to a complete stop, it’s debatable whether he kept the puck in motion towards the net.  Anyway, no whistle was blown, so it’s the goal is good, and the Blackhawks get a road win.

The two teams with the best records in the Western conference squared off on Wednesday night in a great game but the chatter after the game was surrounding Kane’s game winner. It is hard to fully explain, but Kane slowed his skate...

Patrick Kane Did the Quadruple Deke To Beat the Wild in a Shootout Last Night (Video)

Chicago Blackhawk Patrick Kane won the game 4-3 over the Minnesota Wild last night.  He did it with style.  Not sure how many deke moves he actually pulled off in front of the net, but it was way more than a quadruple and I'm not sure what 10 is even called.  Looks like something coach Bombay taught him.  Check out the video below. ...

Here is Patrick Kane's shootout goal last night

24/7 kind of overshadowed this disgusting Patrick Kane goal.   Just nasty. Why didn't Niklas Backstrom come out to challenge? All of that could HAVE been avoided. Still, some fast hands by Kane, and what dick celebration. On the replay, check on the woman standing off to the left. She basically **** her pants:

Video: Patrick Kane’s Shootout Goal Made Life Difficult on Nicklas Backstrom

The interesting thing about NHL shootouts is there are some players who have as much of a chance of scoring as a 10-year-old would and others who seem to make it look easy.  Patrick Kane falls under the latter category.  Usually when we see a shootout goal scored it’s because the shooter made a couple [...]

Patrick Kane’s Shutout Goal vs. The Wild Was Absurd

Doc Emerick was right on… “My goodness”. You realize this is just flat out arrogance by Patrick Kane right here. We’ll take it because the goal was pretty ridiculous. Amazingly, the guy never stopped his forward movement so it’s all good.

Kane's 'sick' shootout winner still talk of Blackhawks

Asked on Thursday if he counted the nifty stick-handles Patrick Kane amassed before punching in his shootout winner the night before, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville sounded willing to be astounded and leave it at that.

Kane in focus on the ice, on camera

CHICAGO -- Patrick Sharp still has to remind himself sometimes that Patrick Kane is no longer the baby-faced prospect who burst onto the scene straight out of the junior ranks. It's already been four-plus seasons since Kane scored 21 goals and ...
