CHICAGO -- Only a few Blackhawks are on the United Center ice this morning but the first one to get out there was Patrick Kane. Coach Joel Quenneville said after last night's game that Kane was feeling much better after his bout with the flu. I would imagine the South Buffalo native will be good to go tonight.
Kane stopped to take a couple pictures with longtime former Sabres and Hawks defenseman Jerry Korab, who owns a packaging business and lives in suburban Chicago. The Sabres, remember, acquired Korab from the Hawks in 1973.
The Blackhawks did not make Kane available to the media because it was not an official team skate with only a couple players on the ice. Quenneville will be updating his status tonight at 5 p.m. Central. The Sabres are not coming to the United Center at all. Lots of video this afternoon before that nap, boys.
