Jonathan Toews wasn’t the only player who turned his fortunes around in Game 5 on Saturday.
Andrew Shaw had a great night of his own, scoring two goals and drawing a penalty to boot. That’s a big turnaround for the 21-year-old forward who failed to record a point in the first four games of this second-round series against the Detroit Red Wings and was handed a game misconduct in Game 3.
Shaw said Handzus sat down with him and talked to him about controlling his emotions and “eating a punch instead of giving one.” #Blackhawks
