Andrew Shaw participated in a fan question-and-answer segment Monday for the NHL as the League tries to keep fans plugged in and entertained while the season is on pause during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Blackhawks forward answered several questions, including which Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup run he’d like to see featured in a “The Last Dance” documentary like the Bulls’ 1998 NBA championship. ESPN aired the first two episodes of the 10-part series Sunday.
“I’d want to see 2015. It was just fun winning it at home in front of our fans,” Shaw said of winning his second championship in three years and Chicago’s first on home ice since 1938. “We didn’t have to fly anywhere so the party was pretty fun afterwards as well.”
Shaw, a fifth-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft by Chicago, had 15 points (nine goals, six assists) in 48 games during the lockout-shortened 2013 season then had nine points (five goals, four assists) in the playoffs. He scored all five of his goals at the United Center with two game-winning goals in a 4-1 victory in Game 5 against the Red Wings in the Western Conference semifinals and a 4-3 triple overtime victory in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Bruins.
In a full 2014-15 season, Shaw had 26 points (15 goals, 11 assists) in 79 regular-season games then 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in the 2015 playoffs. He could’ve had six playoff goals, but his remarkable head-butt goal in the second overtime was disallowed in Chicago’s 3-2 triple OT win against the Ducks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Final.
