Found October 11, 2013 on Frozen Notes:
I could watch Alexander Steen beat Chicago with 21.1 seconds left in the third over and over again. You probably could too. Now you can! I've watched Steen's charge up the ice several times now and his late heroics seem more impressive now than they did when they actually happened. What a blast. What perfect timing to get his shot off right before contact was made from a backtracking Blackhawk. What a reaction from the crowd.

Healthy Halak looks 'better than he ever has'

Jaroslav Halak trained this summer like he never had before in three seasons as a Blue. The reason was to strengthen his groin which would help him avoid any lingering issues with an injury that sidelined him twice in 2012-13.
