NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

The Blackhawks dropped their seventh straight game in a 3-2 loss to the Canadiens on Sunday at the United Center.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Bears shut down the Rams’ high-powered offense in a 15-6 home victory over the NFC West champion. Former Cubs pitcher Lee Smith and White Sox outfielder Harold Baines were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the “Today’s Game” committee. The Fire acquired attacker Fabian Herbers from the Union for a natural second-round pick in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft.

After their worst loss in franchise history, the Bulls host the Kings on Monday.
