Blackhawks Fall To Penguins

(Pittsburgh, PA) -- Sidney Crosby and James Neal scored in the shootout as the Penguins came back to beat the Blackhawks 3-2 last night in Pittsburgh. Kris Letang scored twice in the third for the Pens to tie the game. Bryan Bickell had both of Chicago's goals in the second period. The Hawks wrap up the preseason slate at home on Saturday against the Capitals.

The Blackhawks continue to trim down the roster as the regular season approaches. Ten more cuts were made yesterday, which included assigning seven players to the AHL's Rockford IceHogs. The 'Hawks now have 36 players on the active roster, including 23 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goalies.


Blues Battle Wild

(St. Paul, MN) -- The St. Louis Blues end the preseason with a home-and-home series with the Minnesota Wild. The Blues are in St. Paul tomorrow night to play the Wild at the Xcel Energy Center. The exhibition season ends on Friday at the Scottrade Center against the Wild.

The St. Louis Blues are adding forward depth. The team announced the signing of Brenden Morrow on Monday morning.  The two sides agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.5-million.
