The NHL officially announced that the Chicago Blackhawks will host the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field at 8pm on March 1, 2014. This is the basically the same information that was reported on April 16th including the story we had here on Blackhawk Up.
This is what Andrew Shaw had to say about the news becoming official by way of Sun-Times reporter Mark Lazerus.
Andrew Shaw on the outdoor game: “It’s pretty cool. It’ll be great to be a part of it. Fans love it and it’s great for us.” #Blackhawks

Yes, last night was the first game of hopefully a long playoff road, but how excited are you about another outdoor game in Chicago next season?
