(CBS) Blackhawks stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane skated together today at an optional Blackhawks’ practice, another indication they’ll be full ready to play in Thursday’s postseason opener against the Blues, just as expected.

Corey Crawford, Antti Raanta and Michal Rosival were the only other Blackhawks to participate Monday.

Kane has been out since suffered a left knee injury on March 19 in a win against the Blues. Toews has been out since suffered an upper body injury against the Penguins on April 1.

“I feel pretty good,” Kane told reporters. “I had some time to rest my injury. It was the right amount of time. With anything, you want to make sure you’re feeling good coming back. I think that’s where I’m at right now. It will be nice to get a couple skates with the team tomorrow and Wednesday.”

Let us know below, how long will it take Kane and Toews to return to top form for the Blackhawks?
