White Sox get chance to root on Blackhawks

KANSAS CITY -- Because they played a Saturday matinee, the White Sox had time to get some dinner and watch the Chicago Blackhawks take down Boston in Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals.

"There was a lot of guys watching," manager Robin Ventura said. "It was fun. You see the passion of playoff hockey and what they are willing to do when they are out there. It's great to watch and great for the city."

Ventura just hopes the Blackhawks can carry the momentum from Game 5 as they head for Boston.

"You want to see them close it out," Ventura said.
