CHICAGO (AP) Scott Foster thought it was going to be just
another night. Then the 36-year-old accountant signed a contract Chris
Kreider Jersey
, put on his goaltender gear and waited in Chicago’s
locker room. Then he got into the game.Then it was his night.Foster was pressed
into action when Chicago lost Anton Forsberg and Collin Delia to injuries, and
the former college goalie stopped all seven shots he faced over the final 14
minutes of the Blackhawks‘ 6-2 victory over the playoff-bound Winnipeg Jets on
Thursday.”This is something that no one can ever take away from me,” Foster
said. ”It’s something that I can go home and tell my kids and they can tell
their friends. … Just a ton of fun.”Foster is part of a crew of recreational
goaltenders who staff Chicago’s home games in case of emergencies for either
team. But it usually just means a nice dinner and a night in the press box
watching the world’s best players compete at hockey’s highest level.Nothing at
all like this.”What a moment,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said with a
chuckle.Forsberg was expected to start, but he got hurt during a ”pregame
ritual,” according to Quenneville. Delia, who was just recalled from the minors
Wednesday, then stopped 25 of 27 shots in his NHL debut before he was helped off
the ice with 14:01 left after he cramped up.Enter Foster, a married father of
two who lives in nearby Oak Park and plays in two rec leagues. After a short
warmup, the game resumed and Foster got a big cheer from the crowd of 21,839
when he denied Tyler Myers for his first save about a minute after he came
in.”The initial shock happened when I had to dress. I think you just kind of
black out after that,” Foster said.Backed by chants of ”Foster! Foster!” and
more loud ovations, he made another stop on Myers and turned away Paul Stastny
and Dustin Byfuglien in the final minutes. When it was over Henrik
Lundqvist Jersey Kids
, the Blackhawks poured onto the ice and
mobbed Foster in the net.”He was great,” defenseman Brent Seabrook said. ”I
think the boys were doing whatever they could to help him out. He made some big
saves. Fun night.”The Jets had won six in a row and were trying to clinch
home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs. But even they were moved
by what happened.”It’s tough for anybody to come in 50 minutes into a hockey
game, let alone a guy who hasn’t played in the (NHL),” coach Paul Maurice said.
”A great moment for him.”Carolina Hurricanes equipment manager Jorge Alves
became the first emergency goalie to play in a game in the modern era last
season. He closed out the final 7.6 seconds of a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay.The NHL
adjusted its rules last summer to mandate that teams have an emergency goalie
present for all home games ready to fill in for either team – setting the stage
for Foster’s most competitive action since 20 minutes in relief with Western
Michigan University in the 2005-06 season.”A few hours ago I was sitting on the
computer typing on a 10-key, and now I’m standing in front of you guys having
just finished 14 1/2 minutes of NHL hockey,” he cracked.It was a wild finish to
one of Chicago’s best performances in a lousy season.Tomas Jurco scored a
career-high two goals in Seabrook’s 1,000th regular-season game, and touted
prospect Dylan Sikura had two assists in his NHL debut. Patrick Kane, Alex
DeBrincat and defenseman Erik Gustafsson each had a goal and an assist, and
Brandon Saad also scored.The 32-year-old Seabrook got the start alongside fellow
alternate captain and frequent defensive partner Duncan Keith. He became the
fifth player in franchise history to skate in 1,000 or more games for the team,
joining Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull http://www.newyorkrangersteamonline.com/authentic-jimmy-vesey-jersey ,
Eric Nesterenko and Bob Murray.Bryan Little scored his 200th NHL goal for
Winnipeg in the opener of a four-game trip. Mark Scheifele also scored for the
Jets, and Eric Comrie made 36 saves while subbing for starter Connor
Hellebuyck.”It wasn’t a good night,” Little said. ”It wasn’t good from the
start. It’s one of those games you want to forget and put behind you and look to
the next one.”Kane got Chicago off to a fast start when he shot it between
Comrie’s legs for his 27th goal 3:44 into the first, and the Blackhawks just
poured it on from there. Saad made it 2-0 with a nifty move to his backhand in
front at 17:17.Jurco added two goals in the second before Little got Winnipeg on
the board with his 16th of the season at 14:24. But Gustafsson responded for the
Blackhawks, scoring on a nice rush to the net at 17:27.NOTES: Quenneville said
Delia was going to travel with the team to Colorado and should be fine for
Friday night’s game against the Avalanche. With four games left in the season,
he said Forsberg (lower body) is likely done for the year. Jean-Francois Berube
was recalled from Rockford of the AHL on an emergency basis.UP NEXTJets: Visit
