Blackhawks, Bruins head into Game 6 without stars
Question of the Day
Toews was tied with Patrick Kane for the Blackhawks' team lead with 23 goals during the regular season. Since being reunited with Kane on Chicago’s top line in Game 4, Chicago has rallied to take the lead in the best-of-seven series. Before he was knocked out of the Game 5, Toews assisted on both of Kane’s goals.
“He’s our leader,” Chicago defenseman Johnny Oduya said. “You know, he’s one of those guys, and when he’s full-speed he gives everything he’s got every game. That’s something that is tough to replace.”
“We’ll see how he is. I think the progress today, he’s doing real good,” Quenneville said. “We’ll visit in the morning, and he seemed fine. So nothing has changed. Nothing is different. We’ll keep an eye on him, and we’ll go from there.”
With or without Toews and Bergeron, the Blackhawks have a chance to clinch their second Stanley Cup title in four seasons on Monday night in Boston. If they lose, the series returns to Chicago for a decisive seventh game on Wednesday.
“I think I should be looking in my backyard and make sure I’ve got my guys playing tomorrow before I start worrying about the game plan with them,” he said. “Right now we know it’s up to us to … bring our `A’ game if we want a chance to win. That part of it should be more important than who they have and don’t have in their lineup.”
