Blackhawks, Penguins announce plans for 2014 game at Chicago's Soldier Field

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks will host the Pittsburgh Penguins in a regular-season outdoor game at Soldier Field next year.

The NHL said Wednesday that the game will be played Saturday night, March 1. Other outdoor games are expected to be announced soon.

The Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field on Jan. 1, 2009, as part of the Winter Classic series. Some 40,818 fans were at the home of the Chicago Cubs for that game.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
