Jonathan Toews took a shot in the mouth. But that didn't slow him down.
The Hawks captain left part of Wednesday's game after taking a deflected shot to his face. It happened six minutes into the third period with the Hawks on a 4-on-3 power play.
Patrick Sharp's shot from the point appeared to deflect off a Canuck, hitting Toews in the face. The puck ended up on top of the net. Toews' lip was bloodied and he left the bench, but returned.
Toews' 21:17 of ice time led the Hawks' forwards Wednesday. He also scored the first goal of the shootout for the Hawks. Toews was tied for the league-lead in shootout goals last season with eight, including converting six of eight attempts at the United Center.
"He's pretty automatic with that shot," winger Patrick Kane said. "It's fun to see him do that."
