While the second group on the ice at Kettler skated hard, the early group got in a normal workout. That’s some evidence - along with the players who were in the first group - that those guys are going to Chicago on Friday for the 8:30 game at United Center.

Troy Brouwer is not among them, so that homecoming will have to wait until March.
