Seeing Jonathan Toews back on the ice during the first game of the preseason was amazing, and I cannot wait to see him back again against the Blues. Two games three days apart is definitely going to be a test for the captain who has not played a game since the 2020 playoffs.
How Toews performs and whether or not he can play an entire game will be the biggest story of the preseason. Obviously, everyone wants to see him healthy and safe, and having a little reassurance that he is good to go ahead of the regular season will be important.
Plus the captain had a great scoring chance during the first preseason game and I am sure he wants to score one tonight. While preseason goals don’t usually matter, the United Center crowd definitely will be giving him a standing ovation should he put a puck in the back of the net against the Blues.
It was great seeing Toews play in game one of the preseason, especially when he scored this sweet shoot out goal:
Hopefully, he can have an even better performance tonight!
