Chicago Blackhawks v Calgary Flames

Blackhawks prospect MacKenzie Entwistle and the Guelph Storm play the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the Memorial Cup semifinal Friday in Halifax.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, Lucas Giolito pitched a complete game shutout in a 4-0 win over the Astros. The Cubs’ comeback fell short in a 9-7 loss to the Phillies.

On Friday, the Cubs start a series against the Reds and the White Sox head north to take on the Twins.
