Toews remains off ice, won't dress against Blues
CHICAGO -- After getting back on the ice for four straight days while recovering from what's believed to be a concussion, Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews has taken the last two days off.

The Hawks didn't practice on Monday and Toews didn't skate on his own, then he missed Tuesday's morning skate prior to Tuesday night's game against the St. Louis Blues at the United Center. Toews will not play against the Blues, his 11th straight game out of the lineup.

Chciago is 5-4-1 in the previous 10 games since Toews left the lineup after a Feb. 19 game here against the Blues.

"He didn't skate today, he's here getting treatments," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "It's part of the process. Some days are better than others, but he knows his body and we'll see how he is."

Here's how the Blackhawks' lineup projects against the Blues:

Andrew Brunette - Patrick Kane - Marian Hossa
Patrick Sharp - Marcus Kruger - Viktor Stalberg
Bryan Bickell - Dave Bolland - Andrew Shaw
Brandon Bollig - Jamal Mayers - Jimmy Hayes

Duncan Keith - Brent Seabrook
Johnny Oduya - Nick Leddy
Niklas Hjalmarsson - Dylan Olsen

Ray Emery
Corey Crawford

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
