NHL: Dallas Stars at Chicago Blackhawks Nuccio DiNuzzo-USA TODAY Sports

The Blackhawks won their first home finale since 2014 with a 6-1 victory over the Stars on Friday at the United Center.

Ty Dellandrea scored on a penalty shot in the third period to lift the Texas Stars past the Rockford IceHogs 2-1 on Friday at H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, Texas. The two teams face off again Saturday in Texas.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the White Sox won 10-8 in their home opener against the Mariners. The Cubs, however, had a fake rally in a 13-10 loss to the Brewers in Milwaukee. Both Chicago baseball teams will play Saturday.

The Fire are reportedly in talks to change their name and return to Solider Field. The club visits Toronto FC on Saturday. The Bulls host the 76ers at the United Center.
