Fire send Blackhawks' Andrew Shaw a customized jersey after disallowed header in Game 2

Andrew Shaw may not have scored the game-winning goal in Game 2's triple overtime battle, but he still went home with a win, along with some new attire.

Midway through the second overtime on Tuesday, Shaw briefly believed he had scored the game-winner, but his goal was disallowed after replays showed he pulled a soccer move and put the puck in with a header.

The Chicago Fire took notice and sent Shaw a customized away jersey:

Inspiration struck for the Fire during their matchup against the Columbus Crew SC on Friday night, where they battled back from a two-goal deficit to earn a draw

How were their two goals scored? Headers.

Niklas Hjalmarsson gets standing ovation from United Center crowd in Chicago return

Niklas Hjalmarsson gets standing ovation from United Center crowd in Chicago return

Niklas Hjalmarsson played for the Blackhawks for 10 years and won three Stanley Cups with the team so his return to the United Center was a big deal.

The defenseman, now with the Arizona Coyotes, made his return to Chicago in Thursday's game. The Blackhawks had a tribute video for him during the game and the crowd gave him a standing ovation after the video.

He was teary-eyed after getting the warm reception.

Hjalmarsson was traded by the Blackhawks to the Coyotes for Connor Murphy and Laurent Dauphin after the 2016-17 season. He played against the Blackhawks on Oct. 21 and again on Feb. 12 last season, but both games were in Arizona.

Injuries limited Hjalmarsson to 48 games last season and he missed Arizona's only trip to the United Center last season, which came in December.

Watch the video above to see Hjalmarsson's tribute and reaction.
