Elias Pettersson's 2 goals lifts Canucks over Blackhawks 4-2

The Blackhawks celebrated Pride night, honoring the city's gay community, without the rainbow-colored Pride night warmup jerseys nor colored stick tape used in previous seasons. On Thursday, the team announced they wouldn't wear them, citing an anti-gay Kremlin law signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in December that could imperil Russian athletes when they return home.

At least one National Hockey League team with a Russian player on its roster has decided against wearing special warmup jerseys to commemorate Pride Night because of a Russian law that expands restrictions on activities seen as promoting LGBTQ rights.
