Toews: Ovi suspension sends message

Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews visit SportsCenter and chat with Neil Everett about the Olympics, the team's current struggles and Alex Ovechkin's hit on Brian Campbell (5:23)

Jonathan Toews said suspending a star like the Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin for his hit on Toews' Chicago Blackhawks teammate Brian Campbell sends a message throughout the NHL.
