This Week for the Blackhawks, Fighting Illini, Bulls
🏒Hockey: The Blackhawks lost a close one to the Nashville Predators in an overtime shootout last night. Sigh. Chi-town Goalie Kevin Lankinen shone, saving 41 of 42 shots in regulation. He’s is still trying to solidify his starting spot, and last night’s performance certainly didn’t hurt.
- Puck drops again tomorrow night when Chicago takes on the Columbus Blue Jackets at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT.
🤸♀️College gymnastics: The Fighting Illini have some serious moves on the floor...and the beam and the bars. The U of I women’s gymnastics team is 3-0 thanks to the prowess of sophomore and junior , who both scored more than 9.8 in their events last weekend. They have us flippin’.
- Heading into their first home meet of the season against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Sunday at 12 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT, the Illini are ranked No. 22 nationally. Time to stick some landings.
🏀The Bulls: Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr. recently suffered a quad contusion that’ll take him off the court for for the third season in a row. Tragic. Carter has started in 14 of the Bulls’ 17 games so far, so this news is not what we wanted to hear.
