Shaw is bundle of energy

CHICAGO — Patrick Kane sits next to Andrew Shaw in the Chicago Blackhawks’ locker room. Even he wants him to stop talking every once in a while.

“There’s times where I almost got to tell him to shut up because he just asks questions and doesn’t stop talking when you’re next to him there in between periods,” Kane said Thursday. “He’s really excited to be here.”

That excitement hit another level after Shaw had the winning goal of the third overtime of Chicago’s 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals on Wednesday night. Dave Bolland’s tip went off Shaw’s right leg and past Tuukka Rask for the timely score.

Shaw was wearing a microphone for NBC Sports, and the ensuing celebration likely will live on among Blackhawks fans for many years to come. “Bolly, I love you,” Shaw yelled, and then: “I love shinpads.”

“He’s a handful in the dressing room, too,” defenseman Brent Seabrook said. “Yeah, he’s a high-energy guy. He likes to have fun, get guys going, jumping around the room, bouncing around. Yeah, he’s pretty much the same as he is on the ice, just without skates on. He brings excitement to the dressing room and is big for us.”
