Blackhawks 5, Winnipeg 1
The Blackhawks thoroughly dominated the Jets in Jonathan Toews' return to his hometown. Corey Crawford stopped 26 shots after allowing a first period goal by Tobias Enstrom, and Chicago received goals by Niklas Hjalmarsson, Patrick Sharp, Ben Smith, Brandon Bollig and Nick Leddy. The Blackhawks blew the game open with three goals during a 4:55 stretch in the second period and Crawford settled down after arguing that former teammate Michael Frolik interfered on Enstrom's goal.
Philadelphia 107, Bulls 104
The Sixers improved to 3-0 and snapped a five-game losing streak to the Bulls Saturday thanks to the play of rookie guard Michael Carter-Williams, who had 26 points and 10 assists. Evan Turner added 20 points and Spencer Hawes has 18 points and 10 rebounds. Carlos Boozer led the Bulls with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Luol Deng scored 20 and Derrick Rose scored 13 but turned over the ball twice in the final minutes. The Bulls turned the ball over 18 times—Rose lost the ball eight times. Philadelphia used a 33-19 third quarter to wipe out a 64-49 Bulls halftime lead and outscored Chicago 25-21 in the final period.
In college football, Northern Illinois improved to 9-0 with a 63-19 rout of Massachusetts, Northwestern remained winless in the Big Ten with a 27-24 loss to Nebraska on a Hail Mary touchdown pass as time expired and Illinois is 0-4 in conference play after a 24-17 loss at Penn State.
