Jonathan Toews And Patrick Kane Are Getting Paid, And They're Worth It

Today the Chicago Blackhawks announced identical eight-year contract extensions for forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. They will run through the 2022-23 season, and each will carry an annual cap hit of $10.5 million a year. This is a lot of money, and it's also almost painfully reasonable. » 7/09/14 2:09pm 7/09/14 2:09pm

Blues Fan Has Facepalm For The Ages After Toews Goal

A hearty thank you to reader Justin for pointing this out because it is wonderful. Look at this man who probably smacked himself in the face with such force that his whole section heard the thwack! Go ahead and expand this one to get the full experience, but don't stop there. There's a lot more going on around him,… » 4/26/14 10:05am 4/26/14 10:05am

Jonathan Toews's Overtime Winner Was As Close As It Gets

There's not much space at all between Ryan Miller's skate and the post, but Jonathan Toews used all of it on his backhand winner in overtime against the Blues.

Lightning Defensemen Combine For Humiliating Own Goal

With 1:49 left in regulation, just 40 seconds after the Lightning had taken the lead on the defending champ Blackhawks, Matt Carle inexplicably and forcefully fired a pass back at Radko Gudas.

Game 6 Could Come Down To The Skating Wounded

They say the NHL playoffs are a battle of attrition, and the Blackhawks and Bruins, the last two teams remaining, remained remarkably unscathed until the finals. But a close, hard-fought series that's already required 20 periods over five games is taking its toll, and each team may or may not be without its best… » 6/24/13 9:30am 6/24/13 9:30am

Jonathan Toews Went To A Hockey Camp And Checked A Child To The Ice…

What happens here is clearly an accidental collision involving Jonathan Toews, the Chicago Blackhawks' captain. But it's hard to tell what's worse: The faint, cringe-inducing wail of the child Toews inadvertently knocks over, or the complete indifference to the youngster shown by Lance Brown of CTV News Toronto.… » 9/13/11 11:00am 9/13/11 11:00am
