All Duncan Keith

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

ESPN.com: As one of the leaders on this team, what do you do with the younger players when they come in for the first time? Is it more by osmosis, leading by example, or do you sometimes take a kid aside and talk to him?

Keith: It's a little bit different for everybody. You get a guy like [Ryan] Hartman, who had played in the minors for a couple of years. I think he was ready to make that step this year. He's got good habits already. Maybe with other guys, you notice that they're young and need to learn, whether it's taking them aside or just showing them or saying, 'Hey this is what you need to be doing here. This is a big step from college.' But a lot of it is on the individual, too. It's up to them. It's like the old saying, 'You can lead the horse to the water, but you can't make him drink.' We've been lucky to have guys who come in and want to be part of a winning team.

ESPN.com: Do the core guys, the original group, ever take stock of what you've accomplished so far together?

Keith: I spend a lot of time with Seabs, obviously. I think we're both proud to have played with the same organization as long as we have and to play in a city like Chicago, and for these fans. There are times when we reflect how lucky we are to be in this situation, and how much fun we've had in this city. It wasn't always the organization that it is now. I's been quite a turnaround. We just feel lucky to be part of it.

Video- You Make The Call On The Jonathan Toews Goal

via the Denver Post,

Colorado coach Jared Bednar challenged the play, and video replays appeared to show Toews was offside before he later scored, but officials upheld the call after a lengthy review and the Blackhawks were within 3-2.

“I don’t necessarily understand it, but it’s a tag-up rule,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. “It wasn’t on his stick. That is what it is. For me, it’s 3-2, nine-and-a-half minutes to go, that gives them a little life. It’s what we do after that that bothers me.”

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said, “I thought it was the right call. It doesn’t trigger the offside until he touches the puck. Johnny (Toews) gets his skate back on time, right at probably the same time as we touch it. You can say it was a tie. That’s the Minnesota play.”

Quenneville was referring to a similar play in the Blackhawks’ 4-3 overtime win over the Wild on Feb 8. In that game, Quenneville used his coach’s challenge after J.P. Parise scored in the second period for the Wild, arguing that Parise was offside on the sequence leading to the goal. After a long review, officials said the evidence was inconclusive and let the goal stand.

Morning Line- Lindy Ruff

"I'm tired of looking at good numbers and not winning games. That doesn't help us in the standings. There are good numbers, but the numbers don't describe the real bad plays you make in the game. The numbers don't mean anything if you make a real bad play that costs you the game. A play that you don't need to make. And we have done this a couple times through this homestand and tonight we really hurt ourselves. When we took the lead, I would want them to earn it. They didn't earn it."

-Lindy Ruff, head coach of the Dallas Stars after a 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.  Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News has more post-game quotes from both sides.

Below, catch the game highlights...
