Danica Patrick Scores Goal During Blackhawks-Wild Playoff Game From Center Ice (VIDEO)

NASCAR driver Danica Patrick showed off some hockey skills on Tuesday night when she participated in the United Center's "Shoot-The-Puck" competition during Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals between the Blackhawks and Wild.

Patrick took the ice during the second intermission and just before stepping up to the challenge, she told reporter Susannah Collins what she was really hoping for.

"Am I a total geek fan if I just want to see a fight?" she asked.

Patrick never got her wish, but she did net a goal and was later treated to an OT game-winner thanks to Bryan Bickell.

With the "Shoot-The-Puck" goal, Patrick now has something in common with Mr. T.
