No news is good news for the Blackhawks.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Sky fell 103-85 to the Mystics for their seventh consecutive loss in the series since the Elena Delle Donne trade. The Cubs outlasted the Rockies 9-8 and reportedly signed free agent closer Craig Kimbrel to a three-year contract worth $43 million. Trea Turner hit a walk-off home run off Alex Colome for the Nationals to beat the White Sox 6-4.

On Thursday, the Cubs wrap up their series against the Rockies.
