Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, who hasn't scored a goal in the playoffs, said he feels some added pressure to score, but he's trying not to let it affect him mentally entering Monday's Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinal series.

"Again maybe a little added pressure given the situation," Toews said after Monday's morning skate at Joe Louis Arena. "But I know it's one of those things that I got to keep working, keep trying to find ways to score and eventually it's going to come. Right now, just not letting it build up too much in my own mind.

"Sometimes you start squeezing the stick and the rest of your game kind of goes downhill, so not letting that happen. But I know that sooner or later, something's got to give. Hopefully, I'll be able to find a way to contribute in a big way for my team."

Toews tied for Patrick Kane for a team-best 23 goals during the regular season, but he has no goals and three assists in seven playoff games.

Toews' longest goal-less streak lasted four games during the regular season. He's had 21 shots on goal in the playoffs and has had five against the Detroit Red Wings in the second round. He entered this season's playoffs with 17 goals in 52 career playoff games.

"I feel like I've been in situations before where you go a stretch of games without scoring," Toews said. "Again, it's tough. Anyone would start to doubt themselves a little bit. But there's no time for that. There's a lot of different ways I can help my team out. I've really focused on that and been patient. You've got to be patient and know if you keep working something's got to work out for you.
