Skidding Blackhawks take on inconsistent Flyers

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville apparently saw enough. With Chicago in the midst of a three-game losing streak, he commanded a longer-than-usual practice on Tuesday and cursed at his players afterward because he thought their effort was lacking.

The Blackhawks will try to bounce back Wednesday when they face off against the Philadelphia Flyers at the United Center.

Forbath ended the half with a 34-yard attempt to make it 13-12, then scored first in the third quarter when a fumble by Crowell set up a 43-yarder.

Sure, there was Cal Ripken’s streak. And I don’t mean to belittle what a grind a professional baseball season is. I spent a year in San Bernardino with the Dodgers’ Class A affiliate and it was awful. The office was a double-wide trailer with an aluminum roof to really soak in the heat. The air conditioning sort of worked, but the GM would plug all of the other floor vents with trash cans to make sure that his office was a nice and breezy 29 degrees. That’s Celsius, mind you. (Seriously, Celsius makes way more sense. Stop being so American.) So, I know baseball is rough. But come on.
