PITTSBURGH (AP) Patrick Kane darted behind the Pittsburgh Penguins net, seemingly intent on trying to bend a wraparound past Marc-Andre Fleury.

Halfway there, the Chicago Blackhawks star changed his mind, instead flipping a backhand pass to Artemi Panarin at the left post. Panarin flicked the puck off an unsuspecting Fleury - caught looking the other way - and into the net.

Seems nobody can see the Blackhawks coming these days. Not even the defending Stanley Cup champions.
