Good morning Blackhawks fans and Happy New Year! The Chicago Blackhawks take on the Washington Capitals during their 2nd Winter Classic appearance and third outdoor appearance since 2009 when they took on the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field.
The Blackhawks made their first outdoor appearance as a team on the rise in 2009 and it was an announcement that the Chicago Blackhawks were back as a force in the NHL and a year and a half later they would be hoisting their first Stanley Cup since 1961.
Now the Chicago Blackhawks are part of the Winter Classic because they are one of the premiere franchises in the NHL and one of the best TV draws in the NHL which when you look back to where the Hawks were from 1998-2006 it’s almost unbelievable. This appearance is almost a thank you to Rocky Wirtz for making the Blackhawks a model franchise.
