Black­hawks’ Toews skat­ing; will miss 9th straight games

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

CHICAGO | Black­hawks cap­tain Jonathan Toews skated for the first time Thurs­day since he was in­jured nearly three weeks ago.

Toews was on the ice be­fore the Black­hawks had a morn­ing prac­tice at their fa­cil­ity near the United Cen­ter. He has not played since Feb. 19 be­cause of an up­per body in­jury that has been widely re­ported as a con­cus­sion. He will miss his ninth straight game Fri­day when Chicago hosts the New York Rangers.

He has 57 points in 59 games.

Two days of ba­si­cally wall-to-wall col­lege hoops start with noon games from the Big Ten (ESPN), ACC (Ch. 20) and At­lantic 10 (CSN) tour­na­ments and don’t wrap up un­til a Pac-12 semi­fi­nal (CSN+) that tips off at 11:30 p.m. Step­ping out­doors, check out the PGA ac­tion from Do­ral (1 p.m., Golf Chan­nel).
