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:
Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
