NHL Playoffs 2012, Blackhawks Vs. Coyotes: C Jonathan Toews To Play In Game 1

Chris Kuc of The Chicago Tribune reports the Chicago Blackhawks will indeed have their star center in Thursday's opening to the 2012 NHL Playoffs:

Jonathan Toews played only 59 games for the Blackhawks in the 2011-12 NHL Season, but still finished the year tied for second on the team with 29 goals. The 23-year-old captain has missed the last 22 with what is believed to be concussion symptoms.

The Chicago Blackhawks and Toews begin their match against the Phoenix Coyotes at 9:00 p.m. on the NBC Sports Network.
