Around The UC:

-ChicagoNow: Chicago Blackhawks and Cubs "heart" Mag Mile campaign, "Hearts-a-Bluhm"

-Toews:"Right now, I'd say go with the two leading scorers in the league — (Steven) Stamkos and (Sidney) Crosby. There are a lot of different guys who can do it, guys who are captains on their own teams. The great thing about an All-Star game is that there are so many great players there, guys who have that respect and experience around the league."
ChicagoTribune: Will Hawks' captain be accorded same honor for All-Star game?

-Crawford:“It’s nice to have a streak going. It’s always in the back of your mind, but it’s always about what you do next and your effort."
Sun-Times: Crawford on pace to join rookie race

-Dowell:"Passing lanes through the middle which leads to one–time shooting lanes. It's so far for the goalie to travel from one side to the other. We were giving that up too much."
ESPNChicago: Hawks hope to cool off Predators

-Kane on Sharp:"I don't want to pump up his tires too much. I don't want him to get too big a head or anything." Sharp building reputation as key scorer for Hawks

-Sharp on Crawford:“We’ve seen him play a handful (of games) each year. This year it seems he’s ready for the No. 1 job and he’s playing great. You see the way he fits in with the guys in the locker room and Marty (Turco)’s been a huge help for him, one of the best partners in the game.”
CSNChicago: Crawford goes from backup to Calder contender

-Turco:"In my eyes, you better have a darn good reason to have a bad attitude. I can think of a lot worse situations to be in that might come close to having a bad attitude. The kid is playing great."
ChicagoTribune: Turco on alert for Hawks

-Seabrook:“We made some strides tonight. I still think we can be better. I don’t think it’s our best game as a tandem ever but I think it’s definitely a start. We played very well together, we used each other well, we used our forwards well.”
ESPNChicago: Keith, Seabrook key Hawks' improvement

-"Brian Campbell looked up from a text message from Blackhawks teammate Patrick Sharp Monday night and smiled— even if the joke was at his own expense. “I know what you're doing right now,” said the text, a reference to Campbell's tendency to watch ABC's “The Bachelor” on Mondays."
ChicagoTribune: A night at the Bulls game with the Blackhawks' Brian Campbell

-Coach Q on Leddy:''He should continue to get his positioning exactly where we want it to be. You just appreciate his reads and his poise out there for a young kid.''
Sun-Times: Is Nick Leddy here to stay?

-BlackhawksTV: Coach Q and Toews after today's practice (video)

-ESPNChicago: Video: Hawks locker room talk (Sharp and Skille)

-FYI: Go see Dilemma, which is in theaters now! The last scene is worth it!
