The Blackhawks return to the ice Wednesday against the Ducks in Anaheim.

The USHL’s Steel aim for their eighth straight win Tuesday when they host the Cedar Rapids Roughriders in suburban Geneva.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg after a 5-19 start and promoted associated coach Jim Boylen to be his replacement. The first game of the Boylen era is Tuesday at Indiana.
