Toews, Seabrook miss Wild game
Chicago Blackhawks' captain Jonathan Toews and Brent Seabrook missed their second consecutive game Monday night, sitting out a 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild with what appears to be concussion-like symptoms.
Hawks head coach Joel Quenneville admitted neither player has done "anything" since leaving the ice last Wednesday night after collisions in a game against the Vancouver Canucks.
"Both game days [Saturday and Monday] they came in with a chance of playing," Quenneville said Monday, two hours before game time. "We thought yesterday that one or two could possibly play today, and you know every day is different. We're still on that short-term track, and so hopefully this week, they will be ready to go."
The Hawks recalled Jacob Dowell. He logged 5:11 of ice time and get into an early brawl, earning a five-minute major.
The Hawks faced former teammate Martin Havlat for the first time in the regular season and held him scoreless.
