Toews: 'There's no time to waste'

19.jpgHawks captain Jonathan Toews was very blunt Sunday before Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Philadelphia Flyers.

It's time for the Hawks to step up and take control of the series, which is tied at two wins each.

"We don't want to sit here and think that we have everything to lose, like we're letting it slip away," Toews said. "That's a tough team and they worked hard to even this series up.

"We got to believe that its ours. It truly is. We just have to go find a way to take it. It's down to a best-of-three series here and there's no better way to start that than being at home."

The home team in the finals has protected its ice so far. In the 20 previous Stanley Cup finals, the team winning Game 5 has won the Stanley Cup 14 times (70 percent).

Toews, so strong the last two rounds, is still looking for his first goal of the series.

"You don't play this far into the season, in June, for nothing," Toews said. "I think we can all, as teammates and a team, look at each other and think that we can dig a little deeper and find that little extra something there because we know as a team how good we are and we haven't reached that limit yet. We've only got three more games to do that. So there's no time to waste."
