Toews scored the game’s first goal, on the power play, in the first period. It was Chicago’s only lead in the game, and it lasted for just over three minutes. Toews has seven goals and 14 points this season, so he certainly needs to pick it up. Ryan Garbutt scored his first, while Artem Anisimov picked up his ninth. Trevor Daley had two assists.

Jonathan Toews wasn't happy after Chicago's 3-0 loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

"We had our chances at the end, but sometimes you don't come out with the work ethic you need," said the Blackhawks captain. "We weren't winning the puck races, we weren't winning the battles — all those little details you hear us talk about. You don't get the bounces if you don't do that." Toews has been held pointless in his last two outings after he picked up an assist in each of his first two games. Look for him to step up Thursday night at Washington.

Jonathan Toews contributed an assist in Chicago's 3-2 loss to the Rangers on opening night of the 2015-16 season.

In an interview with a Winnipeg radio station, Jonathan Toews said he's confident that the off-season story surrounding Patrick Kane will sort itself out.

"Yeah, you just have to have confidence that things like that will resolve themselves over time and for the time being, you stay together as a team, you support your teammate or teammates who are maybe going through a rough patch," said Toews. "Eventually you deal with it internally, you stay together as a team and you’re confident as individuals and as a group. Everyone kind of stays together and at the end of the day, we always say to each other, what is said and done in the locker room is the only thing that matters."

Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz believes that Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are worth every penny of their eight-year, $84 million contract extensions.

"I think that they're quality individuals," Wirtz told the Chicago Tribune editorial board. "They're never satisfied. They're great leaders, and I think they're terrific for the city. As the eight-year contracts go on, I think we'll see they're worth every penny." The contract extensions will kick-in this upcoming season. Limited cap space has forced the Hawks to part ways with veterans like Patrick Sharp and Johnny Oduya, but keeping Toews and Kane in the fold was a no-brainer for Chicago.

Jonathan Toews understands that more pressure accompanies his new contract.

Toews and Patrick each see their matching eight-year, $84 million contracts start this season. "As soon as the next season starts everyone tends to forget about what happened last year and it’s time to go to work again," Toews said. "We’ve shown we can do that and we know given the fact we just lost … important teammates and the focus is on us and our contract that there is more pressure than ever." With the amount of moves Chicago has made this summer, Toews will need to continue his stellar play — 28 goals, 66 points last season.

Jonathan Toews said the Hawks' toughest opponent en route to the Cup was the Anaheim Ducks, who took Chicago to a seventh game in the Western Conference Final.

"Anaheim had so many components of the game," Toews said. "The physicality, the speed, the skill of the top-end players like the (Ryan) Getzlafs and (Corey) Perrys we ran up against. They were such a tough team in goaltending and all aspects.

He'll also appear on the cover of EA Sports' NHL 16 alongside Patrick Kane.
