Two-Point Diversion: 'Hawks Win, More Injured Bulls

Blackhawks Beat Back Kings In OT

Patrick Sharp netted two goals on the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night with his second being the game winner in overtime. 'Hawks win = good news, but the better news? Adam Burish made his season debut after recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL. Sidenote: The LA Kings have a goaltender named Jonathan Quick which is just begging for "Not Quick Enough" styled zingers. Just sayin'.

Deng, Miller and Gibson Likely to Miss Orlando/Miami games

The MASH unit that is the 2009-10 Chicago Bulls got more "great news" (sarcasm!) with Luol Deng (strained calf), Brad Miller (gigantism?*) and Taj Gibson (plantar fasciitis) all are likely to sit on the team's two-day, two-city tour of Florida. Thursday Chicago visits the Amway Arena where Dwight Howard will be spelling sacrificial lamb, B-U-L-L and Friday the team will try to slow Dwyane Wade...

*No, not really, Miller's thumb is a little outta whack and yes, I am a doctor and that is the official prognosis.
