-Crawford: “Johnny’s done that all year. He knows what to say at the right time. He told us just to relax and play our game, that we know what we can do.” ChicagoBlackhawksBlog:
Grants Quote of the Week: Feb. 20-26

-Toews: "It's always more challenging when you go through some tough moments and you're losing games and you're competing for a playoff spot. You can make all the excuses in the world and say what's different about this team and last year's team. (But) we're not talking about last year. There are no easy games for us (this season), especially at this time of the year. Sometimes maybe we expect that. It's tougher as a leader especially when you're trying to spark the rest of the guys … and things aren't going your way. It definitely has been more challenging this year."
