The Blackhawks lost again Wednesday night as the Vancouver Canucks blanked the home team 5-0.
If Blackhawks owner Bill Wirtz has his way, Amos Hughes, a homeless man who can usually be seen outside the United Center begging for spare change, will have to find a new territory.

Twice in two nights the Chicago Blackhawks blew a lead and were unable to recover, dropping Friday's game 5-4 to the Dallas Stars after entering the third period up 3-1, then falling to the visiting St. Louis Blues 4-3 Saturday night after going up 2-0 early in the contest.
The Blackhawks grabbed a solid early-season win last night against a fellow Original Six team, Montreal Canadiens. Despite being another in a long string of non-televised home games, this reporter was there in person after scoring some free tickets from someone on the inside.
