NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Columbus Blue Jackets Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

There was no news on the Blackhawks front Wednesday.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, first overall pick Tierna Davidson scored her first NWSL goal in the Red Stars’ 2-1 loss to the Orlando Pride. Lucas Giolito threw a three-hit shutout for the White Sox in a 4-0 win over the first-place Twins to take the series. The Cubs topped the Giants 12-11.

On Thursday, the Cubs play the Giants again. The White Sox return home for a seven-game homestand, starting with a four-game set against the Rangers.
