The Blackhawks will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins as a part of the NHL Stadium Series.
January 19 vs. Boston Bruins
This game will mark the first time the Stanley Cup contenders meet since Game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Expect the Boston Bruins to seek revenge against the champions by playing their physical game. In fact, the Blackhawks haven't beat the Bruins in Chicago since 2010.
The good thing is that the game can't go to triple overtime!
January 22 at Detroit Red Wings
It's strange to think that the Blackhawks won't play the Detroit Red Wings until almost four months into the regular season. The Red Wings were the team to threaten the Blackhawks' chance at a Stanley Cup the most last year, taking a 3-1 series lead at one point.
Even though the teams are no longer division rivals, the two games against the Red Wings during the regular season may be the most intense.
March 1 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
The Blackhawks played the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field in 2009 and lost. This season will offer a better Chicago team the chance to win its first game outdoors at Soldier Field.
Although the rivalry between Chicago and Detroit is more historic, the Pittsburgh Penguins will bring a competitive game.
Interesting to note, this will be Sidney Crosby's first time playing in Chicago since 2006.
