There was nothing new on the Blackhawks front Sunday.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Sky blew a 16-point lead in a 84-81 road loss to the Sparks. Kris Bryant capped a four-run seventh with a three-run homer for the Cubs to rally past the Reds 6-3. Lucas Giolito struck out a career-high 13 batters, but the White Sox offense was shut out 2-0 by the A’s.

On Monday, the White Sox start a three-game series against the Astros.
