CHICAGO—Blackhawks’ star Patrick Kane is expected to miss about three weeks with a lower-body injury sustained during a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Blues last night.
Kane, the team’s leading scorer, was injured when he collided with St. Louis’ Brenden Morrow at 7:56 of the second period.
Morrow fell into Kane after he was checked by Chicago’s Sheldon Brookbank deep in the Blues’ zone.
“It was a freak play,” said Chicago coach Joel Quenneville.
“We’ve been fortunate most of the year,” he added.
“We’ll deal with it.”
