"He's going to be a nice player," Avs coach Joel Quenneville said. "That certainly was a great play, and one-on-three we have to make a better play defensively."
'Hawks coach Denis Savard called the goal "highlight-tape, goal of the week, probably goal of the year, probably one of the best goals for a long time."
Said Jonathan Toews: "I gave a couple of head fakes, and I guess with the speed it was enough to get around the first defenceman. I decided to take it to the net and Theodore was out, so I stuffed it around him."
"I was telling the guys on the bench it felt like I blacked out and I couldn't even remember what happened on that play," Toews said. "That's what happens sometimes, you just go by instinct, and if you catch a few breaks, you're lucky enough to score. That's pretty much the only way I can sum it up, really."
"Man, that was a sick goal, that's for sure," teammate Patrick Kane said. "I got a D-zone assist there. I passed it up to him in the D-zone and he goes through the whole team. I told him. 'Thanks for the point, buddy.' "
