The tail end of what appeared to be a, um, physical disagreement between Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith.

- Chicago Blackhawks stalwarts Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith got into a dustup at Tuesday’s morning skate, according to multiple reporters, including The Athletic’s Mark Lazerus.
- Toews had Keith pinned down on the ice and had most of his jersey off before assistant coach Sheldon Brookbank broke them up.
- The rest of the team gave the players a few stick taps and the morning skate resumed as usual.
“Just some friendly wrestling … That’s the whole point of a morning skate, to get you ready for the game,” Toews told Lazerus. “We’re ready now.”
- On the brightside, didn’t the Blues have a fight at practice the year they won the Cup?
After "a little friendly wrestling" between Toews and Keith at morning skate, the boys are ready to get after it tonight against the Panthers. pic.twitter.com/QEGyX1Qu9m
