Blackhawks hopeful Jonathan Toews can play

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was thumped hard by Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk in the second period of Game 5, forcing him to sit out the third period. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said he was encouraged about the center’s progress and availability for Monday night’s Game 6 at TD Garden.

“[He’s] doing much better today,” Quenneville said Sunday. “He’s progressed. We’re optimistic that he might be playing tomorrow night.”
