Who would dare step up and rescue the captain in this moment of peril? Why, his goaltender of course.
Here’s how Crawford saw it:
“Yeah, well, their guy grabbed him, got a couple of free shots. So I figured it was enough. Just decided to go in there and grab his head.”
That he did.
Toews seemed appreciative after the game:
“That was great, that was great. I was pretty much laughing. It was one of those moments after the play when you could defiantly hear the crowd respond.
“He’s so competitive in all the areas. Obviously he didn’t like seeing me take a few shots there, so he thought he’d step in. It was a great moment.”
For the record, Crawford does have a HockeyFights.com page.
