Winter Olympics
Four Blackhawks will be battling for gold when Team USA takes on Team Canada in a highly anticipated rematch tomorrow. Patrick Kane scored two goals less than 2:30 apart in Team USA's 6-1 route of Finland. USA scored all six goals in the first 13 minutes of the game before cruising the rest of the way. Meanwhile, all five 'Hawks in the Canada's 3-2 win over Slovokia in the other semifinal were conspicuous by their silence. Marian Hossa, who's had a fantastic tournament, and Tomas Kopecky will try to help Team Slovokia rebound to take the bronze when they face Finland (tonight, 9 p.m., MSNBC) while Duncan Keith, Jonathan Toews, and Brent Seabrook will take the ice with Team Canada tomorrow against Kane and Team USA in a heated battle for gold (Sunday, 2 p.m., NBC).

Bulls Burn Blazers In OT
The Bulls got a clutch 115-111 overtime victory over the Portland Trailblazer last night for, led by Derrick Rose and Luol Deng, their sixth win in the last seven games. The Bulls built a big early lead, only to see the Blazers trim the lead to one by the half. But Luol Deng scored seven of his 23 points in overtime to push the Bulls over the top. Derrick Rose led all scorers on the night with 33 points. The Bulls are now a half-game back of Toronto for the fifth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. They'll try to keep the streak rolling when they head to Indiana tonight to play the Pacers (6 p.m., WGN).
