Looking Toward Future Bulls Play Host To 76ers

The Blackhawks win 3-2 over Ottawa last night. Nick Schmaltz had the deciding goal in the seventh round of the shoot out. It was Chicago’s second win in the past eleven games. It was also a milestone game for Coach Quenneville who was behind the bench for his sixteen hundredth game. The Blackhawks and the Senators are both way out playoff contention heading into the NHL’s trade deadline this coming Monday. Chicago will host San Jose on Friday.

 

The Cubs are gearing up for this coming Friday’s game against the Brewers in the Cactus League. Left hander Michael Roth will be starting the pitching lineup.

 

The Bulls get back to action tonight after the All-Star break. Chicago is sitting at twelfth in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia is visiting the Bulls tonight.

Blackhawks Playoffs Hopes Are Fading

The Blackhawks are playing host to the Senators tonight. Chicago has won one game out of their last ten. They are thirteen points away from the wildcard slot in the western division. Chicago is ten points away from the Colorado Avalanche.

 

The Chicago Bulls are going with youth for the rest of the season. Jerian Grant won’t be part of the Bulls rotation moving forward. Bulls executive vice president John Paxson was clear stating that the Bulls are committed to playing their younger players for the rest of the season. Cameron Payne will be replacing Grant to be back up to Kris Dunn at point guard.

 

The Czech Republic eliminated the US from men’s hockey last night with a 3-2 win in the quarter finals. Lindsey Vonn is taking the bronze home in women’s downhill skiing.

 

Spring Training is officially underway. The Cubs are playing against the Brewers this Friday while the White Sox are taking on the Dodgers the same day.
