The Blackhawks eked past the Senators Friday thanks to the go-ahead goal by Marian Hossa. The former Ottawa Senator scored midway through the second period on a power play goal, which the Hawks have struggled with this year. Ray Emery, also a former Senator, stopped 25 of 26 shots on goal to help keep Chicago on top. Brian Bickell also scored for the Hawks Friday. Patrick Sharp had two good chances on a breakaway and then on a penalty shot, but was robbed of both.

Bulls 112, Cleveland 91

It's hard not to look strong against the struggling Cavaliers. Derrick Rose entered the second half with blazing effort, scoring 10 of his 19 points and six of his nine assists in the third quarter. Luol Deng also had a season high 24 points and Carlos Boozer came out with a double-double scoring 13 points and grabbing 11 boards for the Bulls, who had a 12 point lead going into halftime. After the half, the focus was on Rose. The Bulls have now won 12 of their last 14 and are competing with Miami for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
