Daily Herald Report

Despite losing their last two games following a historic 21-0-3 start, the Chicago Blackhawks have cracked the cover of Sports Illustrated for the third time in franchise history.

The issue, on newsstands now, features a story by Brian Cazeneuve, who writes that the Hawks have revived the spirit of Chicago fans still upset over the departure of key players from the 2010 Stanley Cup team. He also credits the team with rescuing the NHL and helping fill up arenas to 96.7 percent of capacity since the season started, and 109.4 percent in Chicago. Cazeneuve says: "And just like that -- from completely locked out to totally locked in -- Chicago has given the league a much-needed boost."
