Five Blackhawks eliminated from World Championships

Five of the six Blackhawks participating in the 2012 IIHF World Championships will go away empty-handed as both Canada and Sweden were eliminated Thursday.

The Canadians fell to Slovakia 4-3. Patrick Sharp picked up a secondary assist on Jeff Skinner's goal in the second period to tie the game at 2. Alexandre Burrows scored late in the frame to give Canada a 3-2 lead, but a pair of Slovak goals in the third period grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat.

Duncan Keith was held without a point.

Meanwhile, no Blackhawk recorded a point in the Czech Republic's 4-3 win over Sweden. However, Michael Frolik's medal hopes stay alive while Viktor Stalberg, Marcus Kruger and Niklas Hjalmarsson's tournament came to an end.

Frolik and the Czech Republic play Slovakia Saturday for the right to play the winner of Finlad and Russia in the gold-medal match Sunday.

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is.
