Blackhawks' Toews under the weather, skips practice

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was sick Thursday and stayed off the ice at practice at United Center.

Toews was the lone Blackhawks player missing at the skate, but coach Joel Quenneville said it's nothing serious. The Blackhawks host the Minnesota Wild on Friday in Game 1 of a Western Conference Second Round series (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS).

"He's fine," Quenneville said. "He's a little under the weather today, but he'll be more than fine."

Toews, who scored three goals and had four assists in the first-round series against the St. Louis Blues, is tied for the Blackhawks lead in scoring with defenseman Duncan Keith (two goals and five assists).

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
