Preseason Gameday 4 – Blackhawks

7:00 PM
CONSOL Energy Center
Know the Enemy:
Tonight it's the Pittsburgh Penguins versus the Chicago Blackhawks man….

Whatever's left of the defending Stanley Cup Champions will be in the house.
We're hearing unconfirmed reports that a written copy of the NHL Salary Cap will play on the team's fourth line.
The CONSOL is dreading it's destruction after watching clips of the epic game seven showdown between the Blackhawks and the Penguins in 1995:
It wouldn't be a Penguins/Blackhawks game in Pittsburgh without a Sudden Death reference.
Tonight's game will be televised on FSN, but it will air on tape delay after the Pirates postgame show.
With games airing on tape delay or only on the radio it seems like we've gone back in time.
