The Blackhawks' Patrick Kane isn't getting much downtime this week. The Stanley Cup playoffs MVP headed to New York to appear on Wednesday's edition of "Late Show with David Letterman."
The big question is, does he have Lord Stanley with him, or his Conn Smythe Trophy, the NHL's playoff MVP award?
According to CBS, Kane will talk about the Monday's thrilling Hawks win over the Boston Bruins to win the Cup for the second time in four years. The episode airs at 10:35 p.m. June 26 on CBS. The Blackhawks scored two times in 17 seconds during Monday’s Game 6 to defeat the Bruins 3-2, and take the series 4-2.
Kane led the Blackhawks with one hat trick, nine goals and 10 assists in the postseason. Kane, a native of Buffalo, N.Y., became the third straight American-born winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy, the NHL's playoff MVP award, and just the fourth American-born winner ever.
With the Blackhawks victory rally set for Friday morning in Chicago, Kane will have to hop on a plane and come right back to Chicago. He's definitely not going to miss this big Chicago party.
Other guests on Wednesday's Letterman will be Jamie Foxx, star of the new film “White House Down,” musical guest Wale and The Backstreet Boys, who will present the Top Ten List.
