>> now that's more like it. >> i would say so, we've been waiting a few days for this. you know the drill, got the rings and the stanley cup banner raised, and still no vict victories, and the blackhawks were out. this began horribly for the hawks. 14 seconds in, on cory crawford and it was 2-0 less than 3 minutes in. the come-back begins here. leaving it for cane and he buries it on brian miller 2-1. later in the first, nicholas jomerson zeros in on jason thomasville who may never have seen him coming. game misconduct and he was taken out on the stretcher and given a

thumbs-up. scoring to give the hawks their first lead of the night. early in the third, stole the puck near center ice on miller, that's the game winner. crawford gets the victory. they killed off 13 minutes of power play time and the hawks get on the board 4-3. life is good if you're a chicago bear, leading the nfc north, tied for the best record in the league, and coming home to play a team they should be able to beat, the seattle seahawks. the question is will jay cutler be ready to play this weekend? we'll know more on wednesday. tom collins is plan b at quarterback. collins was terrible yesterday, threw six completions and four interceptions, leading to a qb rating over 6 but he's still the guy, at least for now. >> we haven't changed anything right now, same way to go into the game, everyone is lifted
