Chicago Blackhawks: Wayne Gretzky
May, 23, 2013
Jerry Lai/USA TODAY SportsJonathan Toews has just three assists in eight playoff games this year.If Wayne Gretzky were coaching Jonathan Toews, he knows what he would tell the Chicago Blackhawks captain to help him snap out of his playoff slump, which has seen him score just three assists in eight games.
"In my career I went through a couple stints where we'd be in a playoff series and I had a couple coaches pull me aside and say, 'We don't need a lot of production out of you. We just need you to score that one big goal whether it's early in the game or late in the game,'" Gretzky said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "I think that took a lot of pressure off me, and I know Joel Quenneville is a tremendous coach and I'm sure that's what they're talking about right now, 'Listen, you don't need to score three or four or five goals, we just need one big goal out of you, and we know you're capable of doing that,' and I'm sure he'll rise to the occasion tonight."
