No Toews for Hawks' season finale
Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews told reporters Friday he will not play in Saturday's regular-season finale against the Detroit Red Wings (1 p.m. ET, NBC, TSN2).

Toews will miss his 22nd consecutive game Saturday due to a concussion. He last played Feb. 19, and the Hawks are 12-5-4 in his absence.

He did not mention his status for the start of the playoffs.

The Blackhawks go into the season's final day sixth in the Western Conference, but with a regulation win Saturday could move into fifth place by virtue of winning the season series with the Red Wings.

The Hawks also will be without forwards Andrew Brunette and Dave Bolland for Saturday's game.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
