Blackhawks prospects Alexis Gravel and Jake Ryczek of the Halifax Mooseheads face off against MacKenzie Entwistle and the Guelph Storm at the Memorial Cup.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Fire’s three-match unbeaten streak ended with a 4-1 loss to the Earthquakes on Saturday in San Jose. The White Sox defeated the Blue Jays 4-1 in a rain-shortened game. The Cubs fell 5-2 to the Nationals in Washington, D.C.

On Sunday, the Red Stars visit the Houston Dash. Both the Cubs and the White Sox both play.
