Kings' Muzzin rattles Blackhawks' Toews with heavy hit
A playmaking threat each time he steps on the ice, Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews found some room in the third period of a Dec. 30 game against the Los Angeles Kings. Little did Toews know Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin had him in his sight.

A playmaking threat each time he steps on the ice, Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews found some room in the third period of a Dec. 30 game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Little did Toews know Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin had him in his sight.

The Blackhawks were leading the Kings 1-0 with 13:38 remaining in the game and looking for more when Patrick Sharp chipped the puck into the Kings' zone. Toews went after it, but the 6-foot-3, 217-pound Muzzin was there to meet him shoulder-to-shoulder and send him crashing to the ice and against the boards.

Muzzin had four hits in 15:46 of ice time of the Kings' 1-0 loss to the Blackhawks at United Center.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
