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 think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
