Toews not quite ready

Jonathan Toews went through the morning skate with the Blackhawks on Thursday but won’t be in the lineup against the Phoenix Coyotes. It was the second straight day on the ice for the team captain, who was off the ice for two weeks with concussion-like symptoms after taking a hit from Vancouver’s Willie Mitchell on Oct. 21 at the United Center. He’ll be re-evaluated on Friday morning to determine whether he can play in that night’s game against the Avalanche in Colorado. The Phoenix game is the fifth straight that Toews has missed.
