CHICAGO -- Call it a franchise scare as the entire United Center saw a Duncan Keith blast deflect off Jonathan Toews’ head early in the first period of the Hawks 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Toews was woozy leaving the ice and immediately went to the dressing room as a sold-out crowd held its collective breathe.
“It hit me on the helmet,” Toews said after the game. “It could have been worse I guess.”
Toews was back on the ice shortly but not before getting two sets of stitches on the left side of his forehead.
