Jonathan Toews made team history in the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 win in Game 3 against the Oilers.

Jonathan Toews is one of the greatest players in Chicago Blackhawks history. He adds to his already Hall of Fame legacy tonight with his 11th career playoff game-winning goal as the most in team history, tied with Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, and teammate Patrick Kane.

Toews scored two goals in last night’s 4-3 win. That game was a crazy one, with both teams taking one-goal leads at their own times.

This definitely felt the most like Blackhawks’ playoff hockey, with a close game ending late, with two late goals by Matthew Highmore and then Jonathan Toews. I mean, does it get much better than that?

In tonight’s game, Toews skated in his 131st playoff game. That ties him with the legendary Denis Savard for second most in team history. He truly made a big impact during this one.

Toews’ Power-Play goal in the 1st period gave him 19 career playoff Power-Play goals, which is now tied for 3rd most in Blackhawks history. Lastly, Toews tied former teammate Patrick Sharp for 6th most playoff goals with his 43rd goal coming as the game-winner.
