It’s been a good week for Patrick Kane. First, his sexual assault accuser withdrew her case, then the Blackhawks forward was named the NHL’s First Star of the week.

Kane has goals in four consecutive games and is coming off a four-point performance against the Oilers last night.

He’s tied for the NHL lead in goals (10), points (23) and plus/minus (11) and ranks second in assists (13).

Kane scored this ridiculous backhander Sunday night:

The forward’s best season came in 2010, when he scored a career-best 88 points.

The Blackhawks return to action Thursday when they host the Devils.
