Because the internet works in wonderful and mysterious ways, Twitter user Vinny Oz scooped out an image posted on reddit of The Korea Times sports section. (How one happens to come across such things is beyond me, but that's beside the point.) Before we even get to it, let's establish first how The Korea Times could have just left the Stanley Cup celebrations alone without an ounce of coverage. Especially given that they are on the other side of the globe, there really isn't any obligation to chime in. Kudos, I guess -- for trying?
Despite the effort, the headline in all it's delusional glory reads: "Chicago Bears clinch Stanley Cup." The mental image of this is even funnier than the major copy editing mishap. Just imagine the Bears hoisting the Stanley Cup.... (since the headline naturally opens up a forum of bad Bears jokes, we'll just leave it at this).

Well then, guess this takes care of why the Blackhawks celebration is at Soldier Field. It all makes sense.
On the latest Blackhawks Talk Podcast, Adam Burish and Pat Boyle discuss which Blackhawks could be on the trading block and what players are building blocks for the Hawks future.
Burish also shares a couple memorable trade deadline days and his “near” return to the Blackhawks in 2012. Plus, he makes his bold trade deadline prediction for the Hawks.

The Blackhawks have banned the four fans — who were ejected from Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals for their racist remarks towards Capitals forward Devante Smith-Pelly — from future home games.
On Monday, a Blackhawks spokesperson released this statement:
We have contacted the select individuals involved in the incident on Saturday to notify them that they are no longer welcome at our home games. Racist comments and other inappropriate behavior are not tolerated by the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Blackhawks also wanted to remind fans that they can alert security at the United Center by texting the following to 69050: UCASSIST <SPACE> followed by the seating section, row and a brief description of the issue.
