In Friday's edition of Hawks Headlines, we take a look at how former Hawk Dave Bolland is doing up in Toronto and also take a peek at a video of one of Blackhawks legend Denis Savard’s most famous goals.

- In case you missed the news on Thursday, the Chicago Blackhawks announced that Nikolai Khabibulin will be starting in goal on Friday night against the New York Islanders. [Daily Herald]

- Since Khabibulin was let go by the Blackhawks after the 2008-09 season, the team has gained a "swagger" from winning two Stanley Cup championships, according to the veteran goaltender. [Chicago Sun-Times]

- The Blackhawks feel like they gave away two points on Wednesday night to the St. Louis Blues, and they are bound and determined not to let that happen again. [CSN Chicago]

- Normally, the Blackhawks don’t practice on the off-day during a stretch of three games in four days, but with their losses to the Blues and the Tampa Bay Lightning, head coach Joel Quenneville wanted to deliver his team a message about their play by staging a practice on Thursday. Scott Powers has more. [ESPN Chicago]

- Despite Quenneville feeling the need to send his team a message, the Hawks are still confident that they can bounce back quickly from two tough defeats. [Chicago Tribune]

- Blackhawks VP of Hockey Operations Al MacIssac has been busy travelling around the US the past few days to deliver Stanley Cup rings to a couple of members of the 2013 champs who are no longer with the team. Dave Bolland, Carter Hutton, and Ray Emery all received their rings as MacIssac swung through Philadelphia and Nashville. [Blackhawks.com]

- Apparently the Maple Leafs are enamored with Bolland’s history of winning, and as Jonas Siegel reports, it’s that asset and his versatility that are leading to his early success in Toronto. [TSN]

- Finally, the NHL has been releasing some videos of some of the greatest goals in Blackhawks history, and this one from Hawks legend Denis Savard is definitely one worth watching:
