Moron or psychic? It's hard to say which about the fan, likely from Winnipeg, that threw the hat on the ice before Evander Kane's shootout attempt Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center. Maybe both. Kane already had two goals in the game, and even a shootout marker wouldn't count as an official hat trick. But Kane liked the thought, actually, and he didn't flinch, wiring a shot high into the net past Minnesota Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom to send the Winnipeg Jets to a 4-3 shootout win with the final shot of the game. "I was thinking that it was good that somebody was thinking that I was going to score," Kane beamed after the game, having scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season during regulation time. "I knew what I wanted to do and I stuck to it. I'm a shooter and I was able to pick the corner."
