Watch Jonathan Toews tie Game 5 from an impossible angle with 38 seconds left in regulation

We all know what Jonathan Toews is capable of in the playoffs, right? If we don't, we should watch what he did Monday in Game 5 of the Western Conference Final between the Hawks and Ducks. And even if we do, we should still watch him score from a nearly-impossible angle to tie it with 38 seconds in regulation.

Jonathan Toews' playoff exploits need no embellishment to impress even the most casual hockey fan. And once again – this time, with just 38 seconds left in regulation time in Game 5 Monday – the Chicago Blackhawks superstar center showed he lives for this time of year by scoring twice in the final two minutes of regulation to send the game to overtime.

Game 5 looked to be a lost cause for the Hawks after Patrick Maroon scored at 14:45 of the third to make it 4-2 Anaheim, but Toews brought the visiting team to within a goal when he scored his sixth of the playoffs at 18:10. And 72 seconds later, Toews scored at a virtually impossible angle at the 19:22 mark to tie things up:

The Hawks would go on to lose 5-4 at Honda Center when Ducks winger Matt Beleskey scored just 45 seconds into overtime, but seeing Toews impose his will on a game is always something special.
