Chicago Blackhawks Vs Pittsburgh Penguins Live Streaming, Predictions, And More

CHICAGO, IL - MARCH 01: Patrick Kane /

The Chicago Blackhawks are finally back on the ice, and after what seemed like the longest summer ever, it’s finally time to watch some Blackhawks hockey.

The first 10 games on the Chicago Blackhawks schedule is pretty brutal with them all being playoff teams from last season, with the 2 time defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins their first opponent on the season.

There is two strange things about tonight’s home opener in my eyes. First off, why isn’t this game on National TV? I know NBCSN has the Detroit home opener in a new arena on tonight, but it’s the Hawks vs the Pens that has to trump Wild vs Red Wings.

Secondly, it’s the 2nd night of the season and the Penguins are already playing back to back games on the road. Take that Back to Back champs from the NHL schedule maker!

The story for the Chicago Blackhawks will be all of the new additions to the team with Brandon Saad and Patrick Sharp returning to the franchise after being gone since the 2015 Stanley Cup Championship.

I as you all know by now will be watching Alex DeBrincat closely to see if can continue to play great against the big boys of the NHL like he did during the preseason.

The Penguins are the Penguins with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Matthew Murray with some Phil Kessel thrown in for fun.  They willed themselves to back to back Cup wins and made the Blackhawks dynasty not look like a dynasty anymore.

You would think there would be a hangover after two straight Stanley Cups especially during the beginning of the season before things get really serious so who knows what kind of effort we will get from the Penguins tonight.

Here are the Game details.
