-Comcast SportsNet will be airing a one-on-one interview with Jonathan Toews. You can watch a preview of "Inside Look: Jonathan Toews" here. Don't forget to watch the whole interview at 9 pm on Monday.

-Comcast SportsNet also has several new promos, featuring Seabrook, Sharp, Keith, and the ice girls. Their acting (if you can even call it that) hasn't improved any, but they always provide the laughs. Check them out here.

-Hockey players and Superheroes collide: "The National Hockey League and SLG Entertainment LLC, led by Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men among other comics superheroes, announced Thursday their unprecedented partnership to form Guardian Media Entertainment LLC. This partnership creates the platform from which to launch Stan Lee's vision for his latest superhero franchise, The Guardian Project, which will encompass the creation of 30 Guardians (one to represent each NHL team) as a new series of superheroes, with a creative concept that organically and authentically incorporates various NHL elements but is not set in the world of hockey." NHL, Spider-Man creator Stan Lee join on new superheroes project (The Blackhawks already have Wolverine on their team)

-Keith: "Winning motivates me. I don’t like losing. I think that’s why we won last year, we don’t like losing. And I still don’t like losing just because we won one time now."

-"The spot features a "he-shoots-he-scores" moment and the super "Long live the dream," followed by a shot of Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews–the hockey school's official spokesperson and its founding member–waking from his own dream on the team bus as an NHL play-by-play announcer says "a spectacular goal by Jonathan Toews.""

-Sporting News Magazine named Chicago as the best sports city (of course!). You can buy the latest issue, which features Toews, Kane, Stanley, and Joakim Noah on the cover.

-Missed the latest episode of Blackhawks TV? No worries! The Blackhawks have you covered, check out the newest episode here.

-Coach Q on Leddy: "It's a delicate position as a young kid on the defense. But he has earned the right and the opportunity based on how he has played. He looks like he belongs on the ice when he's playing."
Chicago Tribune: Leddy has so-so debut
