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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
