On January 1, 2009 the Detroit Red Wings will head to Chicago and play the Blackhawks in the second outdoor game. Last year the Penguins won against the Buffalo Sabres in a game which fans loved.
If you're not into the NHL please give this game a shot. It will not disappoint. I would rather watch this game then one of the BCS bowl games.
The Red Wings are one of the best teams in the league and are extremely exciting to watch. The Blackhawks are one of the hottest teams in the league and youngsters Patrick Kane and Jonathon Toews are some of the most talented players around.
This game is also interesting because it is taking place in such a historic place, Wrigley Field. Outdoor games are great for the game and I hope to see more of them in the future, hopefully one in the New York area so I can try to make it.
