Toews on track to play in Game 6, Bergeron iffy
BOSTON (AP) — Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville says forward Jonathan Toews is “100 percent ready to go” for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins.
Quenneville says the Selke Trophy winner felt fine on Sunday and in the morning skate at the TD Garden on Monday.
The Bruins are a little less certain about Patrice Bergeron, who’s their top forward. He did not participate in the team’s morning skate. Coach Claude Julien says he feels confident Bergeron will play, but also discussed possible replacements.
Toews left Game 5 on Saturday night after a hit to the head. Bergeron’s injury was not disclosed.
Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final is Monday night. The Blackhawks have a 3-2 lead and can clinch their second NHL title in four seasons.
