* Roumeliotis, NBC Sports Chicago:

"For the first time in 407 days, Jonathan Toews played in a hockey game on Wednesday night. But you wouldn't have thought that based on his performance.

"The Blackhawks captain had an assist, three shots on goal, two takeaways, a shootout goal and won 15 of 21 face-offs for a percentage of 71.5 in Chicago's preseason opener at the United Center. It was just like old times again."


55:55: Flight Plan.

* Sky vs. Sun.

* Voepel, ESPN: "Travel has long been a subject of debate in the WNBA, and Connecticut coach Curt Miller broached the topic after the Sun's 79-68 semifinal victory to even their series 1-1 with the Chicago Sky. Both teams fly to the Windy City on Friday for Sunday's Game 3 (1 p.m. ET, ESPN), but it will take six different commercial flights.

"Miller said the Sun traveling party will be split up among three flights taking off from two airports: in Boston and outside of Hartford, Connecticut. The Sky, meanwhile, will be split up among three flights taking off from three airports: in Boston, outside of Hartford and outside of Providence, Rhode Island.

"The reason, Miller said, was to avoid tall players having to be in middle seats so they have more comfortable flights.

"I want you guys to hear this," Miller said in his postgame news conference at Mohegan Sun Arena. "That's what this league goes through. That's what these amazing women, the best in the world at what they do, go through."

"Chicago coach James Wade said the Sky traveling party would be leaving at 3:30 a.m. Friday to begin journeys to three airports."


1:03:16: NWSL Weekend Canceled.


1:05:45: Fired.
