COLUMBUS, Ohio Jonathan Toews skated back in Chicago today, the first time hes taken the ice in more than a week. It was a good sign for the Blackhawks captain, who has been out for more than a month with a concussion.
Its always good to see him on the ice, yeah, coach Joel Quenneville said after the Blackhawks 5-1 victory over Columbus. Hes progressing here, but well know more tomorrow.
Obviously, there is still no definite timetable for Toews return. He had skated four consecutive days more than a week ago before apparently suffering a setback. Meanwhile, the Blackhawks have found ways to win, going 9-4-1 in his absence.
It says a lot about our team; guys have stepped up, Duncan Keith said of the Blackhawks performances sans Toews. Well be excited when Jonathan comes back. Were just going to keep on playing one game at a time and trying to get better.
Who are the Bulls? The team that beat Cleveland and Toronto or lost to Dallas, Minnesota and Milwaukee?
That's the question Bulls fans are currently asking and the one Bulls Insider Vincent Goodwill posed in the video above.
The Bulls have had impressive wins and shocking losses, but neither of those should be surprising at this point. The Bulls are, as Goodwill put it, consistently inconsistent.
The first half of the season has proven that Dwyane Wade still has some memorable moments left to give and Jimmy Butler continues to approach superstardom. On the downside, the drama surrounding Rajon Rondo has meant the 'three alphas' that were hyped up in the preseason haven't been the dynamic trio some Bulls fans had hoped.
Coach Fred Hoiberg doesn't have the shooters his system needs, but can he still rally the troops and get something out of Rondo?
Watch the video to see Goodwill's look back on the Bulls' first half and what could be ahead.
