After a great play-in series, Jonathan Toews struggled against the Golden Knights.
Toews was on fire against Edmonton with four goals and seven points in only four games but had only a goal and an assist in five contests against Vegas. Coach Jeremy Colliton tried to get things going in Game 5 as he put John Quenneville in the lineup and placed him on the top line with Toews. "The Quenneville thing, we wanted to change it up," Colliton said. "I thought that Toews' line, they were outstanding in the Edmonton series, I didn't think they were quite as effective in the Vegas series. We tried in Games 3 and 4 to maybe shift it around to put (Patrick Kane) Kaner there a little bit to just change up the rotation somewhat. We felt like Quenneville... we knew Tazer liked playing with Quenneville. He talked about it a lot during the year that he enjoyed playing with him. Just a way to inject a bigger body, physical, good shot. And then that allowed us to move (Brandon) Saad with Strome and (Aex) DeBrincat, and I thought they were probably our best line in Game 5. Toews had 18 goals and 60 points last season after a career-high 35 goals and 81 points in 2018-19. Look for a 60-65 point season in 2020-21 and draft him accordingly. Aug 22 9:53 am (EST)
