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've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
