Sox contingent headed to Blackhawks game

CHICAGO -- About 25 members of the White Sox active roster and coaching staff will be at Game 7 of the Blackhawks' Western Conference semifinal contest with the Red Wings on Wednesday night at the United Center. That total includes White Sox captain Paul Konerko, a true hockey aficionado, and manager Robin Ventura.

"It's great stuff for the city, Game 7 and hockey," Ventura said. "There's not a lot of things like it."

When asked for a prediction, Ventura first went with a shutout in the Blackhawks' favor.

"That would be nice," Ventura said. "However, I would say 3-1 Hawks. I'd like that."
