5. NHL Stadium Series against Minnesota Wild, February 21
The Blackhawks will be featured in another outdoor game. This year, the Hawks will head up north for a big game against the Wild at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota.
The home of hockey should be a rabid environment for the Wild’s first outdoor game since the NHL introduced the Winter Classic and Stadium Series.
The outdoor contest also represents the first of three games the teams will play against each other in roughly a five-week span. This game could get the bad blood boiling to peak levels by the beginning of the homestretch.
