No Toews for Hawks tonight
Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN) with an upper-body injury.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told reporters in Chicago that the injury is not related to a wrist injury that sidelined Toews last month, and he is being listed as day-to-day.

Brendan Morrison will play in Toews' place.

Also out for the Hawks is defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, who will be replaced in the lineup by John Scott.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
