Bowman makes most of Kane's injury

This week's injury to Patrick Kane presented an interesting opportunity for Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman. The Blackhawks might have lost their star offensive player for 12 weeks with a broken clavicle, but Bowman had a chance to keep his team a Stanley Cup contender because Kane’s injury happened just before the trade deadline. A week later and Bowman would have been out of luck. Instead, Bowman went to work. His phone rarely left his ear.

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Jonathan Toews had a look of certainty on his face.
