On The Weekend Series: "Definitely a tough weekend, I just think our energy and our play hasn't been there like it was. I think the biggest thing for us is we've just got to find the positive out of these things and we've got to just keep going. It all starts with a good week of practice, so kind of just bounce back and get back on track as quick as we can."
Chicago head coach Greg Moore
