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.

It’s hard to tell who liked it more – Toews or the pack of 20-something guys getting in their cheap feels. You do you, Chicago. [The Big Lead]
After celebrating their Stanley Cup win in the locker room, Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews and some of his teammates took the celebration out onto the ice. The Bruins TD Garden was completely empty and Toews did a little shimmy and then moonwalked on the ice. It was cool to see “Captain Serious” having fun and letting loose.

This gripping Stanley Cup final has gone five games — with Game 6 set for Monday night in Boston — and there remains great uncertainty about what lies ahead.

After the Chicago Blackhawks clinched the Stanley Cup win over the Boston Bruins in Game 6, Blackhawks fans took to the streets to celebrate. Enough of them made their way over to head coach Joel Quenneville’s house to toilet paper his house.

The playoff beard never quite came in for Jonathan Toews. Same for Patrick Kane.
It's OK. It looks as if they are going to get plenty of practice in the coming years.
The Chicago Blackhawks will be able to bring back much of their young core of top players next season when they try to become the first repeat Stanley Cup winner since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998.
It appears that Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk won’t face a suspension from the NHL as a result of the devastating hit he laid on Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews during Saturday’s Game 5 in Chicago.
According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the league has reviewed Boychuk’s hit and decided that it did not warrant a disciplinary ruling. Boychuk himself stated after the game that...
Back in 2010, when the Chicago Blackhawks last won the Stanley Cup, head coach Joel Quennville‘s house was toilet papered. Now it seems that act of sanctioned vandalism is becoming a tradition when the Hawks come out on top of the NHL.

If Jonathan Toews and Patrice Bergeron can't play in Game 6, both
the Hawks and Bruins are going to have some big skates to fill.
