Around the UC:

-Skille:‘‘Jake is just really a strong individual because of that. You look at him every day, the attitude he has . . . it takes a really strong person to go through that every day.’’
Sun-Times: More than just a game for Hawks' Dowell

-ChicagoTribune: Son finds magic in Chicago Blackhawks' national anthem

-Kane on giving his dad a Stanley Cup championship ring for Christmas: "I might have ordered the ring a little bit tight. (My dad) was putting it on his finger and he was saying, 'No, no, it's good,' and his finger was completely red. I was like, 'Dad, let's just go get it stretched — it's better for you.' "
ChicagoTribune: Kane won't speculate on return date

-Kane:"I'm really happy with the last couple days, [but] I think once you get in a game it's a little bit different. For now I'm pretty happy with it."
ESPNChicago: Patrick Kane nearing return

-Kane on Sharp:“He’s not overlooked in this room but definitely in the NHL. He had 36 goals a few years ago and now he’s proven almost a point-a-game guy. I don’t want to pump his tires because we battle a little bit like big brother and little brother. But he’s fun to watch out there.”
CSNChicago: Sharp overlooked in NHL, not with teammates

-Coach Q:“Either way, he’s [Turco] going. I think both guys would get consideration, but Marty has it.”
ESPNChicago: Turco's success good problem to have

-Kane:"For now, I don't care who I play with really. It's just nice to get back in the lineup and hopefully that will happen tomorrow. I'm going to skate in the morning and then make a decision after that." Hawks likely to get Kane back against Blues

-Coach Q on Morin:“I didn’t see the play. I didn’t hear exactly how he was hurt. .  .  . Whatever the case, I’m sure we’re going to do what’s best for the kid.”
Sun-Times: Turco to start again tonight; Crawford ill

-"Viktor Stalberg and John Scott skated without a line at practice on Monday, making them likely healthy scratches against St. Louis if Patrick Kane returns... The fourth line in practice was Jake Dowell, Ryan Johnson and Jack Skille... Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp skated at wing with center Tomas Kopecky... The line of Dave Bolland, Fernando Pisani and Bryan Bickell stayed intact."
DailyHerald: Hawks expect Kane to play vs. St. Louis

-Coach Q:“We might be having some tough decisions — who’s playing, who’s playing with whom and who gets so much ice time. It’s a healthy situation to be in.”
Sun-Times: Hawks ready for a healthy splash

-Sharp:“Marty's been waiting for an opportunity and prepared well. He's a true pro, and you knew he was going to have a good effort. It was tough giving up that one at the end, but at the end of the day he can be happy with the way he played, and I know we're happy for him.”
DailyHerald: Hawks' Turco battles through tough times

-"He may not get the most headlines or a big chunk of credit for the Hawks' recent success, but Soupy has quietly been a huge asset to this team since he came back 24 games ago. In the third year of his massive seven year contract, Campbell is finally coming into his own as the two-way player that fans have wanted him to be since day one. If he continues to produce on both ends of the ice like he has been, perhaps more folks throughout the city (and the league as a whole) will give him the credit he deserves."
