CHICAGO -- John Henson cracked a smile as he headed down the court after his desperate turnaround splashed through the net. It was that kind of night for Milwaukee. Henson had 25 points, 14 rebounds and six blocked shots, and the Bucks beat the Chicago Bulls 78-74 on Tuesday in a matchup of slumping teams racked by injuries. "We just kept fighting," Henson said. "Man, we just kept fighting. As a young team, a scrappy team out here, thats what we got to do." Brandon Knight added 19 points and 10 boards for Milwaukee, which had dropped three of four. O.J. Mayo was just 2 for 12 from the field, but had seven assists and made a couple of big plays in the fourth quarter. Milwaukee only used nine players due to injuries, and Miroslav Raduljica logged all of 83 seconds. Chicago went with an eight-man rotation after Joakim Noah was sidelined by a bruised right thigh. "It doesnt matter," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Everyone whos called upon is capable of doing their job. Eighteen turnovers hurt us. In the first half we had great ball movement with 14 assists. In the second half, we have to do better." Mike Dunleavy scored 18 of his 24 points in the second quarter, but the Bulls struggled on offence in the latter part of their fourth loss in five games. Carlos Boozer, the only starter from the season opener at Miami, had 21 points and 12 rebounds. "This is a winnable game," point guard Kirk Hinrich said. "Just couldnt play well enough to do it." The Bucks (5-16) trailed by seven at halftime, but cut the deficit to two heading to the fourth quarter, and then opened the final period with a 10-2 run. Hensons dunk over Tony Snell off a pass from Mayo made it 65-59 with 8:30 to go. Chicago (8-11) had a chance after Dunleavy made a 3 to trim Milwaukees lead to 73-72 with 1:59 remaining. But Henson responded with a long turnaround jumper as the shot clock expired, prompting the wide grin as he headed back to play defence. "I guess the basketball gods were with us tonight," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "It was a hope and a prayer. It went in." Ekpe Udoh then blocked Snells 3-point attempt, and the Bucks held on for their third road win of the season. Thibodeau said Noah aggravated the injury during the morning shootaround. He said he thinks the big man will be able to travel to New York for Wednesdays game against the Knicks. Luol Deng (left calf tightness) and Jimmy Butler (sprained right big toe) were ruled out earlier in the day. Derrick Rose is likely out for the season after right knee surgery. "Theyre missing guys. Were missing guys," Knight said. "But at the end of the day, thats how its going to be (in) NBA basketball. Youre never going to have all your guys, more than likely." It was the same problem on the other side for Milwaukee, which was without reserve guard Gary Neal due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Neal, who played seven minutes in the Bucks 90-82 loss to Brooklyn on Saturday, did not make the trip to Chicago. Centre Zaza Pachulia broke his right foot in last weeks 105-98 loss to Detroit, and the Bucks also are playing without injured starters Larry Sanders (thumb) and Caron Butler (knee). All those injuries took a toll on both teams, especially early on. The Bulls shot 25 per cent (6 for 24) in the first quarter, and the Bucks struggled to 33 per cent (7 for 21) in the second quarter. Dunleavy helped Chicago find its stride after the sloppy start. He had 10 points in a 12-2 spurt that gave Chicago a 40-31 lead with 2:44 left in the first half. Dunleavy was 7 for 7 from the field and 3 for 4 at the line in the second quarter. Snell had nine first-half points as the Bulls carried a 42-35 lead into the break. "The main thing is we have to play hard and compete and grind it out," Dunleavy said. "You can do that whether Joakim Noah or Luol Deng or Derrick Rose is in the lineup or not. Thats a mindset thing. Thats not a skill thing." NOTES: It was the first game of the season between the teams. They split four games last season, with the two wins for each side coming on the road. ... Bulls rookie Erik Murphy made a jumper in the first quarter for his first NBA basket. He played 10 minutes after playing just 15 minutes all season coming into the night. ... Bernard Jersey .

In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious.The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with goaltender Corey Crawford on a six-year contract extension worth $36 million. Crawford, 28, posted a 16-7 record with one shutout, a league-best 1.84 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage in 23 post-season games while helping the Blackhawks capture the Stanley Cup in June. A tweet from Cup keeper Phil Pritchard on Monday showed Crawford signing the contract papers on his day with the trophy. "I want to be in Chicago for my whole career and this is amazing to be able to do this and get this deal done," Crawford said on a conference call. Crawford registered a 19-5-5 record with three shutouts, a 1.94 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage in 30 regular-season appearances last season with the Blackhawks, while earning his first William M. Jennings Trophy (with Ray Emery) as the goaltender on the club allowing the fewest goals against during thhe 2012-13 season.dddddddddddd Crawford ranked third in the NHL in goals-against average, fifth in save percentage, and ranked 11th in wins and shutouts during the regular season. "Hes grown up with our organization and hes earned the ultimate (prize) with our group," said Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman. "So there was never a question in our minds that we want to commit to him because its the most important position we have and we have a lot of faith in his ability to continue. "Hes a young goalie. Hes certainly worked hard to get himself to the NHL and now hes proven he can do it at the highest level." The Montreal native has earned an 83-43-19 record with eight shutouts, a 2.40 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage in 152 career games with Chicago from 2005 to 2013. Crawford was originally selected by the Blackhawks in the second round, 52nd overall, of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
