Just a week ago Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby were teammates, biting into gold medals in Sochi, Russia. Last night in Soldier Field, you'd hardly know it, as the two jawed at each other in the middle of Soldier Field, when the Blackhawks hosted the Penguins as part of the NHL's outdoor Stadium Series. Oddly, the two all stars had never faced in a regular season game. It was hardly a contest.

As snow fell throughout the night, Toews led the charge, cutting though the defense for the team's second goal on the way to a 5-1 victory. The Hawks captain netted the fifth goal as well.

Despite misplacing his custom mask made for this occasion, goaltender Corey Crawford kept East Conference leading Pittsburgh out of the net. Where did that 1 in the score box come from, you ask? Brent Seabrook knocked in an own goal in the third. The team looked sharp in their fresh black uniforms.

The accumulating white fluff led to sticky pucks (not that the dominating home team had too much trouble moving the puck) and some delays in the game, as crew members cleared the rink with shovels often. Hey, can we borrow those guys for our lazy neighbors' sidewalks?
