CHICAGO (CBS) — After three Stanley Cup titles and two Olympic gold medals, one can forgive Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews if he was at a loss for words.
At Thursday’s rally at Soldier Field to celebrate the team’s most recent title, Toews first acknowledged that he was struggling to put into words what all of this meant.
Then, he spoke a few simple truths.
“We are part of the best organization in sports in the world,” Toews said. “And we play for the best fans in the world.”
Then, some unfinished business: win a fourth Stanley Cup in this era.
“Let’s go!” he screamed.
