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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
