Patrick Kane Once Allowed A Goal While Busy Looking At Taylor Swift

Patrick Kane should’ve said no — to the idea of trying to keep an eye on Taylor Swift during a game in his rookie season.

The Chicago Blackhawks forward just couldn’t help himself way back in 2008-09. With the Blackhawks in Nashville to face the Predators, one very notable guest was in attendance behind the bench.

Swift apparently decided to check out the game with a friend, and her attendance didn’t go unnoticed — not just by Kane but by then-Blackhawks head coach Denis Savard. At a recent Hawks fan fest, Savard recalled the game in hilarious detail.

The short story is that Kane lost his man on the back-check, which led to a Nashville goal. Forward to 23:35 in the video below to hear the whole story.
