BOSTON -- When Patrick Kane scored twice to help the Chicago Blackhawks move within one victory of another Stanley Cup, he did so on the sixth anniversary of being drafted first overall. Players dont get selected there without skill, but the bulk of Kanes nine goals in the playoffs have been more a result of hard work and smart positioning by a player whose game has developed substantially in recent years. "Hes really good, especially around the net," Boston Bruins right-winger Brad Marchand said. "If you give him any kind of room down there and he can find the puck, then hes going to make something happen." Kane showed three years ago during the Blackhawks Cup run that he has a knack for making things happen and scoring big goals. But this time around it has been his ability to put back rebounds and loose pucks that earned him some late buzz for the Conn Smythe Trophy. Six of Kanes nine goals through 22 games have come on the doorstep -- either in the crease or just outside it. As his coach with the London Knights, Dale Hunter, watched his Game 5 performance, he remarked that Kane was having success because he was playing in traffic close to the net. "He has no fear to his game. Hes not the biggest guy in the world but hell score goals and hell go anywhere to score them," Hunter said in a phone interview Monday. "He has good vision. Thats why he can go in them bad areas where you can take big hits, and he doesnt get hit often." Its one thing to have good vision and yet another to make a concerted effort to be around the crease. "I think one of the things on this team, you want to crash the net, whether its bringing it back out and getting pucks there and then crashing it again," Kane said. The 24-year-old brings a combination of skill and that willingness to play in tight spaces that makes him difficult to defend. "I think hes not afraid, whether its not afraid to get hit or not afraid to make mistakes," Boston defenceman Torrey Krug said. "Hes not afraid to go to those high-traffic areas. Thats important for a player, especially players that like to play with the puck, to not have the fear like that." Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville knows all about Kanes "high-end skill," but its his ability to control the play with little room to manoeuvre that helps him stand out. "Hes just an unbelievable puck-handler, and I dont know if thats just natural talent or hes worked on it," Chicago defenceman Duncan Keith said. Either way, it has caused fits for the Bruins. Coach Claude Julien and his team had to emphasize better awareness because of Kane. "You look at the goals that Kane has scored, youve got to give him credit," Julien said. "Hes done a good job of getting into those quiet areas and sliding into those pockets and the puck keeps coming to him, and thats what good players do. They find areas to go to where pucks come to them." Of course Kane can still pick a corner and score. His goal on a two-on-one rush put the Blackhawks into the Cup final, and he scored one-on-one against Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard earlier in the playoffs. Against the Bruins, Kane showed teammates that hes adept at scoring the so-called dirty goals, too. Julien likened him to Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby as far as being shifty and elusive around the net. "Hes an elite player," Bruins defenceman Andrew Ference said. "Hes obviously got tremendous skill and speed to get away from defenders and to find open spots on the ice. Hes a challenge for any team to defend against." Even more so now than several years ago when he was a budding NHL star. Bostons Aaron Johnson played with Kane in 2008-09, and though he hasnt had a chance to study the right-wingers improvement, he pointed out that Kane has become a "solid hockey player." Thats not under-valuing Kane but rather an indication that, like other talented forwards, his career is an ongoing maturation process. "I think it takes time because their whole life they havent really needed to play that game," Johnson said. "And once you get to the NHL you have to learn that theres a time and place for certain moves and certain plays. It does take a year or two and a good coach to really embed that inside him." It didnt start with Hunter, Denis Savard or Quenneville. Hunter knew Kane could score before the Knights drafted him. But the way hes been putting the puck in the net in the playoffs has Kane on another level. "Every time theres more on the line, the more he comes up and goes in the dirty areas even more than he should because he wants to score the big goals," Hunter said. "He wants to make the difference in the game, and he has the ability to do it and he pushes himself in big games to do it." wholesale nfl jerseys . -- Novak Djokovic benefited from an erroneous call and claimed he didnt realize he had broken the rules. wholesale jerseys http://www.wholesalejerseyschinagate.com/.The Hanwha Eagles said the team was impressed with Morgans contact ability and base-running skills.The 34-year-old debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2007 and hit . wholesale jerseys authentic .

The Warriors stole home-court advantage with a 109-105 victory Saturday afternoon. Klay Thompson tallied 22 points and seven rebounds, while David Lee had 20 points and 13 rebounds. Harrison Barnes scored 14 with eight boards off the bench for Golden State, while leading scorer Stephen Curry was limited to 14 points with seven assists and seven turnovers. "I am proud of my guys," said Warriors head coach Mark Jackson. "Were not going to quit. We had a tremendous will. This series is far from over." Chris Paul flirted with a triple-double for Los Angeles, depositing 28 points with eight assists and seven rebounds in the disappointing setback. He helped bring the Clippers back into the contest, but made some critical mistakes late. J.J. Redick added a playoff career-high 22 points and DeAndre Jordan scored 11 and grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds. Blake Griffin, an MVP candidate this season, was plagued by foul trouble for most of the game. He managed 16 points before he fouled out after just 19:14 of action. "I kept putting myself in a bad situation by fouling," Griffin said. "I have to do a better job. I have to play smarter. I think some of us, including myself, wanted it too much. We have to relax." The Warriors were in front through most of the second half, but Paul buried a pair of 3-pointers to tie the contest. It was knotted at 105-105 when Golden States Draymond Green worked his way to the free throw line with 24 seconds left and made both. The Clippers used their final timeout and put the ball in their All-Star Pauls hands, but a hard double team forced Paul to lose it out-of-bounds, although a foul couldve been called. After initially ruling Clippers ball, officials went to the monitors and quickly overturned the call, handing it back to Golden State. It appeared to be a classic case of the refereees electing not to call a foul, instead, letting the team retain possession.dddddddddddd While the replay was used correctly by the officials, the NBA acknowledged a foul shouldve been called. "Just prior to the ball going out-of-bounds, Paul was fouled by Green and Paul should have been granted two free throws. Contact preceding out-of-bounds calls is not a reviewable matter," Rod Thorn, NBA President, Basketball Operations said in a statement. Barnes then made 1-of-2 from the stripe, leaving the door open for Los Angeles, but Paul was intentionally fouled and the 86 percent career foul shooter missed both. Green could have put the game away, but he too missed two free throws with 6.8 seconds to play. On the second miss, the Clippers Darren Collison chased down the rebound and stepped out of bounds. Thompson then took his turn at the stripe and made 1-of-2, sealing the outcome. "We didnt play very well," said Clippers head coach Doc Rivers. "We were in foul trouble most of the game. We played hard but a lot of times I think we lost our trust." There were no fireworks that marred three of the four regular-season meetings between the teams. For the Warriors, who pulled off an upset of the Denver Nuggets in the first round last postseason, it was a great win as they were not immune from foul trouble. Andre Iguodala, a stout defender, fouled out in the fourth quarter after around 20 minutes of action. Golden State is already without its defensive anchor, center Andrew Bogut, who fractured a rib and is out indefinitely. "Maybe being short-handed focused on that a little bit more," said Lee. "We feel like this is two very good basketball teams, were a little bit short- handed so our goal tonight was to come out aggressive and to come out and hit first. That didnt mean get down 10 to one or whatever happened, but thats the way it worked but we feel like we have enough players to win this series and just try to be aggressive." This series shifts to Oracle Arena for Game 3 on Thursday night.
