Toews will miss his fifth straight game

28 Feb

Toews will miss his fifth straight game on Wednesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

From ESPN:

“Toews is the same,” coach Joel Quenneville said Tuesday. “He didn’t skate today, about the same he’s been the last few days. No progress. Still day to day.”

Toews has been out more than a week with an upper-body injury, and there is no timetable for his return. The Blackhawks have gone 1-3 without him.

“We’d like to see him on the ice, then you get a pretty good idea when he’s going to be back,” Quenneville said. “He enhances our team in all areas.”

Defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson skated on his own before the team practiced Tuesday, but he will miss his 10th game in the past 11 with an upper-body injury as well.

Corey Crawford will start in goal, and newly acquired defenseman Johnny Oduya is scheduled to make his Chicago debut.

Brandon Bollig, recalled from Rockford Tuesday, will make his NHL debut as well.

The Hawks also recalled Andrew Shaw from the Rockford Ice Hogs as well.
