VIDEO: Patrick Kane scores after shot vaporizes Seidenberg's stick

CHICAGO -- In hockey, it really does sometimes come down to luck. For Dennis Seidenberg, there was a case of some pretty bad luck in the first period of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night.

With the Blackhawks in the offensive zone, Chicago defenseman Johnny Oduya stepped up to hammer a shot on Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask. But Seidenberg was doing his job and got in the shooting lane, using his stick to block the shot.

Or try to block the shot, at least. Instead, the blast from Oduya sliced through Seidenberg's stick like a knife through butter and went right to the waiting Patrick Kane by the side of the net. Kane, being the puck magnet and fantastic stick-handler that he is, tucked it home behind Rask for the 1-0 Blackhawks lead.

I think we can call that one a bad break (awful pun intended, unfortunately).
