Kane Appears To Be Out For Weeks

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

As it did following injuries to Brian Campbell, Marian Hossa and Dave Bolland, life will go on for the Blackhawks without Patrick Kane.

Kane suffered a significant injury during the Hawks’ 4-2 victory Sunday night over the Flames, and while it’s not known yet exactly how long the winger will be out after hurting his left leg, it’s more likely a matter of weeks instead of days.

“We’ve found a way to play without some of our top players,” team captain Jonathan Toews said. “Guys like Campbell and Hossa and I guess now we don’t have a choice, we’ll have to do it without Kane. It’s about everyone else stepping up.

“You’re going to have some ups and downs as the season goes along. Injuries are part of the game. It’s something you have to deal with so we’ll just try our best … and that’s pretty much all we can do.”

You GUESS???  I have a great deal of respect for Toews but man, I don’t ever recall my Captain saying he guesses other people have an opportunity to step up.  My Captain has said, “It IS an opportunity…”
