10. Home opener vs. New York Rangers, October 7
The Blackhawks will raise another banner in an Original Six showdown against the Rangers, who fell one game short of playing the Hawks in the Stanley Cup final.
The Rangers are an immensely talented team led by goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. New York will surely be a threat to spoil the party at the United Center. Another interesting storyline is the return of former Hawks’ draft pick Kevin Hayes, who was unable to reach an agreement with Chicago before signing with New York last season.
