Kaner with the cup update!

Pat will have the Stanley Cup friday in Buffalo.
Here is a direct quote from the blog post at
The hero of Game 6 is ready to celebrate what he made possible. Patrick Kane is bringing the Stanley Cup home to South Buffalo on Friday.

Kane, who was maybe the only person in the house that knew his hard-angled shot beat Michael Leighton for the Cup-winning goal, will receive the trophy at his parents house early Friday and spend the better part of a day and a half celebrating in the Buffalo region. Then, early Saturday evening, Kane and some of his buddies are boarding a private plane bound for Chicago because Kane and the Cup are invited guests to a Jimmy Buffet concert.

Kane will bring the Cup on stage during Margaritaville.

Beforehand, though, Kane's schedule is packed.

After receiving the Cup at his parents house Kane is bringing it to Niagara Falls for some cool pictures at Cave of the Winds. We needed to file insurance waivers just to join him there.

After about two hours at the Falls, Kane's entourage is heading to Roswell Park Cancer Institute, where he and the Cup will visit with patients. Kane will then head to a photo opp at the construction site of a new medical building with some ironworkers whom his father is friendly with.

Kane will spend roughly two hours visiting with local police and fire officials and officers at the New Era Cap outlet in Buffalo. He will take more pictures and sign more autographs for Buffalo's finest.

From the cap store, Kane will head out to West Seneca to DJ Spinners, a roller hockey rink, where he and his buddies will play a game of floor hockey for the Cup. Kane told me they play there once a week in the summer.

From Spinners, Kane's entourage travels to Cheektowaga for his private party at Creekside Banquet Facility.

After putting in a full day Friday, Kane has several more hours with the Cup in Buffalo on Saturday before leaving for Chicago. He plans to take it to a cemetary to visit some family grave sites, plus to a rink and a pizza place. Those details are still being ironed out.
