CHICAGO -- Most players need a guy they trust to say or do anything to prop them up when they're down or set them straight when they've gone off the rails.
For Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, defenseman Brent Seabrook is that guy -- and Seabrook had heard enough in the days leading up to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final to finally feel the need to remind Toews who he is and what he's supposed to do to help the Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins.
"To be completely honest, I was sick and tired of hearing everybody talk about everything that Johnny is doing right," Seabrook said Thursday afternoon at United Center, less than 24 hours after his overtime goal gave Chicago a 6-5 win at TD Garden to even the best-of-7 Stanley Cup Final at 2-2. "He's a great player. He's one of the best in the League, and I just told him that he's got to stop thinking about that too."
