Patrick Kane scored his 400th career NHL goal Sunday as the Blackhawks hammered the Red Wings 7-2.

With the game already comfortably in hand, Kane took an Alex DeBrincat feed early in a long-distance two-on-one rush and skated the length of the ice.

Wings defenseman Filip Hronek lay down to block the pass, but Kane patiently maneuvered around him and beat goaltender Thomas Greiss.

With no fans in the United Center, the ice scrapers instead held up “400” signs as Kane celebrated the milestone.

He became the fourth Hawks player and 100th NHL player all-time to score 400 goals, having also hit the 1,000-point milestone last season.

The goal was part of a third-period eruption by the Hawks that broke what was a tight 2-1 game at the second intermission into a full-scale blowout, earning a split of the weekend home series against their rivals.
