Bulls need quick turnaround with familiar rivals on schedule

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th November 2009

History has shown that it’s never too late for the Bulls to turn things around.

In 2004-05, they started 2-13 and recovered to win 47 games. Last year, they won 12 of their last 16 to finish with a .500 record.

So to call the coming week a critical stretch for the Bulls would be an overstatement. But it would help if they could end a run of four straight lopsided losses before the team’s chemistry and confidence suffer lasting harm.

Blackhawks Earn Day Off After Strong Circus Trip

Posted by TheHockeyGuy on 30th November 2009

“The Blackhawks enjoyed a well-deserved day off today — if you can call flying from Los Angeles to Chicago a day off.

Regardless, they didn’t take the ice the day after concluding their six-game road trip with a 2-1 shootout loss to the Kings on Saturday night.

The Hawks finished the trip with a 4-1-1 mark and have come out of the journey with some momentum and positive feelings about where they stand a little over a quarter into the season.

“We like our team in a lot of ways,” coach Joel Quenneville said after the loss to the Kings. “We have a lot of options as far as putting lines together and special teams. Our goaltenders this trip were great.

“We should be excited about getting better. We’re not satisfied with where we’re at. There are areas we can improve, but certainly we like all our options.”"

Bears’ Wolfe out with kidney injury

Posted by GameSetMatch on 20th November 2009

A lacerated kidney will force Chicago Bears running back Garrett Wolfe to miss the remainder of the season, the team confirmed Friday.


The Chicago Sun-Times first reported the story.

Wolfe suffered the injury on Nov. 8 versus Arizona, and he was hospitalized for the next few days. Still, the Bears were optimistic Wolfe would be able to return in 2009.

The Bears said Wolfe will be placed on injured reserve.

Practice squad running back Kahlil Bell is a strong candidate to be promoted to the 53-man roster.

Good start on Western road trip for Bulls

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th November 2009

Bigger challenges await them down the road, but the Bulls began their five-game Western trip with an impressive and mostly comfortable — save for a few minutes in the fourth quarter — 101-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings late Tuesday.


“That fourth quarter wasn’t real pretty, but fortunately we got some stops when we needed to and came out with the victory,” Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. “A good start to a long trip.”

This was the first meeting of the teams since that big trade last February, so it was only fitting that guard John Salmons, the key to the deal from the Bulls’ perspective, busted out of his recent shooting funk to led the team with 23 points on 9-for-18 shooting.

Royals deal Teahen to White Sox

Posted by GameSetMatch on 18th November 2009

The Kansas City Royals announced Friday they traded utility player Mark Teahen to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for infielders Chris Getz and Josh Fields.


Additionally, the White Sox received cash considerations from the Royals.

Teahen, 28, who has spent his entire five-year career with the Royals, has played every position other than pitcher and catcher. In 2009, he batted. 271 with 12 homers and 50 runs batted in for Kansas City in 144 games.

In 676 career games, Teahen, who was originally dealt to the Royals from Oakland in a three-team deal that sent Carlos Beltran to Houston, has a .269 batting average, 59 homers and 293 RBI. It’s possible that Teahen could play right field next year for Chicago, as the White Sox bought out Jermaine Dye’s contract Friday.

Teahen is eligible for arbitration this offseason.

Sources: Long-term deal near for Keith

Posted by GameSetMatch on 17th November 2009

The Chicago Blackhawks are close to completing a long-term contract extension with defenseman Duncan Keith, according to team and league sources.

The deal is expected to keep Keith a member of the Hawks for the rest of his career, sources said.

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane also are on the verge of extensions, although those won’t be as long as Keith’s, according to sources.

Hawks’ Bolland has back surgery

Posted by GameSetMatch on 11th November 2009

Blackhawks center Dave Bolland underwent successful surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back, according to the team, and he will be out several months.


“Dave underwent minimally invasive surgery today for a herniated disk,” team physician Michael Terry said. “The surgery went well, and we anticipate a full recovery. He should be back in 12 to 16 weeks.”

The surgery was performed by Dr. Richard Fessler at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Bolland last played on Nov. 5 in Phoenix, and he’s been battling back problems since last season. He also missed one other game this year due to back “maintenance.”

Bolland signed a five-year contract this summer and was expected to be the second-line center. He also was thought to be Marian Hossa’s center when he returned from injury. Instead, Quenneville said he will fill Bolland’s role by “committee.” Bolland had two goals and four assists in 13 games.
