Jonathan Toews and Brent Seabrook missed their second straight days of practice on Friday, but coach Joel Quenneville said “both could play” when the Hawks host the Nashville Predators on Saturday. While the Hawks say both are nursing “upper body” injuries, both apparently have concussion-like symptoms.
Quenneville also named Cristobal Huet to start in goal against the Predators. Huet has been shaky in his last two home starts but was a 3-1 winner when the Hawks visited the Predators last Saturday. Antti Niemi was in goal for the Hawks’ last game, a 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Wednesday at the United Center.
