Artemi Panarin has 18 goals this season, 16 of which have been assisted on by Patrick Kane, who set up his linemate once again Tuesday night.

Watch Kane dish a behind-the-back pass off the boards to Panarin in the corner, who sent a backhander past Avalanche goaltender Calvin Pickard to give Chicago a 2-0 lead.

The assist was Kane’s NHL-leading 44th of the season.

Chicago leads Colorado 2-1 after one thanks to an early goal from Richard Panik.

Svedberg shoots it wide, Shaw finds it behind the net and smoothly gets it to Panik for the finish.
