I Love Shin Pads!

Andrew Shaw is a fan favorite, and he has done some really fun things on the ice and said some very memorable things, too. In the 2013 Stanley Cup Final Game 1, the Chicago Blackhawks had fought back from an early deficit to tie the game, and it eventually went into overtime.

The game just didn’t go into an overtime and it didn’t just go into double overtime, but it eventually went into triple overtime. I had to work that night and was recording the game to watch when I got home. My wife met me at the door and said I’ve got good news and bad news.  The bad news was that the game stopped recording because it was so late into the evening. So of course I said what is the good news. She said the third overtime is about to begin so you can watch it live.

Of course, it ended with the good guys winning when a Michal Rozsival shot banged off of Shaw for the winner. It worked out that Shaw was mic’d up for the game, and we got to hear how he loved everybody, including shin pads.
