It’s not too early to nominate Jonathan Toews for the Hart Trophy.
The Blackhawks were down 3-0 to Phoenix last night, early in the second period. Tazer scored twice in seven minutes then set Kaner up a few minutes later for a game-tying goal that would hold into an eventual shootout loss. It was a BAMF performance, one of so many Toews puts on they are hard to count. And it made me look really cool for wearing my #19 shirt to the gym just hours before. Toews’ post-game interview from last night: video.
Toews leads the NHL in goals, Kane leads in assists. The Hawks are first in their division and third overall in the League.
I swear he puts the puck in the net by will. It’s like a magical power that continues to work only because he doesn’t abuse it. When the Hawks need it, Toews rises to the occasion. Oh captain, my captain…Chicago Blackhawks, jonathan toews, patrick kane
