Jonathan Toews fired a puck off goalie Jimmy Howard's mask into the upper right corner of the net from close range -- and that's the only goal the Blackhawks captain has scored so far in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Let that sink in for a second.
Toews, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2010 as most valuable player of the playoffs, has scored once on 51 shots during this postseason. Despite that, his team is still set to play the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS). That's how deep the Blackhawks are this year -- and that's how much Toews has grown as a person, teammate and captain.
"There's a lot of people on the outside watching, and the easy thing to notice is when you score goals or when you score points," Toews said at Tuesday's Cup Final media day. "I mean, at the end of the day that's how you win games, by scoring goals, but I feel like there's still a lot of good things in my game, [and] that all of a sudden it could change [in Game 1]. I could score a couple goals and next thing you know, no one's really worried about that anymore. That's just the way it is. I know that's the way things are, so I'm not too worried about it."
