From Yahoo! Sports Canada:

The NHL Hawks were outdrawn Sunday afternoon by the American Hockey League Wolves in Chicago. The minor league Wolves, 30-20-8-3, played the San Antonio Rampage to a 3-3 tie before a season-high 12,938 fans at Allstate Arena.

Elsewhere in Chicago, the Blackhawks drew 12,177 fans to the United Center for their game against Florida.

Sad, but I've been waiting for it to happen. The Wolves generally draw well, even if Allstate isn't a particualrly good place to see a game.

having been to chicago, its a shame that the hawks have fallen so far off the NHL map, especially as an original six franchise. from what Ive seen when I was there, I get the general feeling that the fans there WANT to get behind the hawks, but the management of the club has really given them nothing to get behind. also I must say that the United Center isnt exactly in the nicest part of town! Even less incentive for fans there to go to games.

I walked into a Sportmart there and came very close to dropping some cash on one of those sweet red hawks jerseys. My paranoia of the overall travel expenses got the best of me though, so it goes. I ended up spending some of that cash on a twelve pack of Old Style, which me and my buddy slammed back at the hotel before we hit Wrigleyville hoping that the fact we were "california boys" would score us some chi-town tail.....that plan didnt work out though :wacko:

Aw, that's nothing. On any given hockey night in Raleigh, the Hurricanes are outdrawn by a Thickburger sale at Hardees.

that is absolutely hilarious. :woot::lol::woot:
