The Chicago Blackhawks’ power play will continue to be shut out as long as the team doesn’t pay its overdue bill, according to a spokesman from ComEd.

“The coaches can draw up whatever plays they want, but don’t expect to see any flashing red lights until the Hawks pay more than $1 million in overdue power fees,” said the spokesman. “Unless the other team scores short-handed or something. We’ll gladly light the lamp for those guys!”
