CHICAGO—Patrick Kane had a big grin on his face as he skated around the back of the net to congratulate Artemi Panarin on his nifty pass in the third period.
Lots of smiles for the Chicago Blackhawks these days.

He won’t forget yesterday in the Sony Open.
DENVER—The last time Tom Brady and the New England Patriots came to Denver, Peyton Manning watched the game on television from inside the locker-room.
Not next Sunday, though. The Broncos’ quarterback will take in his customary spot in the huddle.
