How does Toews playing with one of the best offensive players in the game have anything to do with his offence vs Tavares? Toews and Kane played on different lines, and it was the Toews line matched up against the opposition's top shut down lines. As I have already stated, Toews outscored his line mates by way more than Tavares outscored his, so the whole linemate argument doesn't really hold up. Especially since Toews didn't miss a beat when Hossa went down and he was playing with Saad and Frolik.
