Blackhawks captain Toews to play tonight
Toews said after the team's morning skate that he will play Thursday night.
Toews missed the final 22 games of the regular season because of a concussion, but started practicing with the team this week. He said he felt no symptoms at practice Wednesday and came through the morning skate fine.
A superb two-way player, Toews had 29 goals and 28 assists in 59 games this season. He is expected to give the Blackhawks a big lift against the defense-oriented Coyotes.
