The Hawks beat the Ducks 3-2 in a shutout in Chicago last night, and Patrick Kane, our favorite Buffalo boozehound, provided the prettiest play of the game. This assist to Marian Hossa tied it up in the second period. Kane later told reporters that he'd discussed the move with Hawks great Denis Savard (who had perfected and was known for "The Savardian Spin-O-Rama") many times before and gotten his advice on when to use it.
"It's a little bit of an underrated move," Kane said. "You get acceleration out of it usually and you protect the puck too."
And also: The announcers get to call a spin-o-rama. Everyone wins.
