Toews Proving To Be No One-Goal Wonder
Jonathan Toews tries to shrug off all talk of the goal these days.
You know the one. You probably saw it on YouTube, too, like the thousands – or is it millions now? – of puckheads around the world.
The Chicago Blackhawks rookie slices and dices through three Colorado players, including two defensemen and a backchecker, leaving each flat-footed. He fakes out Avalanche goalie Jose Theodore and slides the puck inside the left post with his forehand.
Yikes. Can we see it again, please?
That shouldn’t be a problem. They’ll undoubtedly be showing Toews’ highlight in Chicago and on NHL videos for years, but to understand the value of what that it means to the Blackhawks, you’ll need to have the sound turned up. Peter McNab, a broadcaster for Colorado Avalanche games on the Altitude TV network, may turn out to be dead on in his assessment of the play.
