Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final is a little over 48 hours away, but according to Patrick Kane, the Chicago Blackhawks have yet to study the Philadelphia Flyers. Here's what he told the media at United Center on Thursday:
To be honest with you, we haven't studied too much of them yet. But we're going to do different things, whether it's power play, penalty kill. I know [Patrick Sharp] will love nothing more than to win this series, especially against his own team guys like Eager, too. It's not just him. But I'm sure it's anyone. Even a guy like Leighton on their team, I know he was drafted by Chicago. And I'm sure he'd love to win against us.
So I haven't been in that situation where I've had to play against my former team. But I'm sure it's something, every time you do, you want to beat them.
"We haven't studied too much of them yet." Yeah, sure, Patrick.
