Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane knows Superman hasn't shown up since the All-Star break.

Kane had hoped the All-Star game would be a turning point. But he has a goal and three assists in six games since the break.

Kane's overall numbers (45 points in 56 games) raise concerns about his health. He had surgery July 19 to repair a scaphoid fracture in his left wrist. He insists it hasn't been a factor, although it still requires care.

"Throughout the whole season, the wrist has been there," Kane told the Sun-Times. "It has its good days and its bad days. But other than that, there's only bruises. No sickness. Nothing. Sometimes it just doesn't happen the way you want.
