Video: Toews’ short-handed goal proves to be the winner


The Carolina Hurricanes erased a two-goal deficit to tie the game, and were given a chance to take the lead in the third period. But Jonathan Toews wasn’t going to let that happen.

Toews, the Chicago Blackhawks’ captain, scored the game-winning goal on a short-handed breakaway early in the third period of Friday’s game, giving Chicago a 3-2 victory over the visiting Hurricanes.

His goal came just 31 seconds after Hurricanes’ forward Alexander Semin evened the score at two goals apiece.
