The day after fighting San Jose’s Joe Thornton, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said Saturday he would do it all over again.“There are times where you have to assert yourself and stand up for yourself,” Toews said. “That’s all it was. You’re not going to see me do that very often and I haven’t in my career. It is part of the game, maybe for that reason that you want to buy your time and space and your respect out on the ice. That’s something you have to do to kind of prove that you deserve it.”The Hawks are 11-0-3 and can move a step close to Anaheim’s NHL record of 16 games to start a season without a loss today against the Kings at the United Center (2 p.m., NBC).
