Jonathan Toews expects the Chicago Blackhawks to do significantly better than they did in Game 1.
"It's night and day between wins and losses, especially in the playoffs, but I think we know we can bring a lot more than we did yesterday," Jonathan Toews said. "We started well, created chances, did a lot of good things, a lot of little things well in the early parts of the game yesterday and kind of trailed off and let them keep control as they got the lead. Maybe to a certain degree, we got that one out of the way. But I think we definitely have to bounce back." Many analysts have picked Chicago to beat Anaheim in the Western Conference Final, but the Ducks showed in their Game 1 win that they can't be dismissed. This will likely be a tough, back-and-forth series. May 19 - 9:45 AM

Jonathan Toews is looking forward to a series-long battle against Ryan Kesler.

"[Kesler] is definitely a player you respect and challenge yourself against," Toews said. "Most of all he plays a smart, gritty game defensively. He tries to take other top players off their game. I think our guys know he’s one of those guys we have to be concerned with — try to not let him have an easy time with us and let him play his game too easily."

Toews is also active in his community and in several charities. The award goes "to the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice, during the regular season."

Even with his team up 2-0 in the second round series, Jonathan Toews doesn't want to assume that Chicago will eliminate Minnesota.

"I think we were saying before the series [that], in a way, a lot of people look at us as the team that's expected to win this series. We're not thinking that way at all. We're thinking we need to work for every chance, every bounce we're going to get," Toews said. "We've shown that so far and we know that there's still a long ways to go, a lot of work left to do and a lot of room for improvement as far as our game goes. We like where we're at right now, but we know that this series is long way from being over." Chicago is set to play in Game 3 on Tuesday. With the series moving to Minnesota, it will be a difficult contest for the Blackhawks, but a win Tuesday night would put Minnesota on the ropes.

"I don't think any round is easy but especially the first round, teams come out flying," captain Jonthan Toews said. "We've seen it many times the last couple of years, one through eight is a crapshoot and you never really know who might come out on top. We have to be prepared for whatever comes our way this week and know that at the end of the day it's about how bad we want it and how prepared we are."

Jonthan Toews scores when it counts the most.

The Hawks' captain has scored three game-winning goals in six days and has seven for the season, one short of the team record. Toews has always been clutch and his exploits this week should come as no suprise to those who have followed his wonderful career to date.

The fact that Toews scored the goal in his hometown of Winnipeg will make it that much more special for him. The 26-year-old has 25 goals and 62 points in 75 games.

Jonathan Toews scored a goal in Chicago's 5-2 loss to Columbus on Friday night.

Six of the seven total goals in this contest were scored in the first period. Jackets' forward Cam Atkinson added an empty netter in the third, but that was it for goals scored after the first frame. Toews had just one assist in his last four contests, so it was nice to see him chip in offensively even if it came in a loss. The 26-year-old has 24 goals and 61 points in 74 games this season. Brandon Saad scored the other goal for Chicago.
