Here’s where the ice will be at Soldier Field

Sep 19, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

The NHL held a press conference today in Chicago to promote the outdoor game that’s being played March 1 between the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins at the home of Da Bears, Soldier Field.

Via the league’s Twitter account, here’s what the set-up will look like:


And because we know PHT readers can never get enough of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman speaking at a podium, here’s NHL commissioner Gary Bettman speaking at a podium:

As always, please direct yourselves to the comment section to complain about all the outdoor games — there are six of them this season — that the NHL is holding.

    I hope the TV crews will be spot-on with their work, as the game has been priced out of my range. Seriously, I can get a stadium club seat to see the Bears for less than what the cheap seats are priced at for the Blackhawks game.

      ticket prices for Devils-Rangers are way too high. I want to take my 6 year old but I’m not paying that money to have him freeze and be miserable.

      I’m a Pens season ticket holder and was able to get two tickets today. Prices ranged from $99 to $329. Per ticket.

        A hundo? Damn, the low end I could find for face was $275. The Bears game I mentioned above? $250.

      Then there’s $150 to $600 for tickets to the Wings – Leafs game at the big house.

      That saddest thing about it is, there are no “good” seats. There’s always a massive gap between the boards and the front row of the stadium seats. It’s a massive cash grab.

      The good news it with all the outdoor games this year and revenue they should generate, the salary cap should go us A LOT for next season.

      its basically because they know the bandwagoners will pay the big bucks without thinking (not saying the passionate fans wont)

    Yeah I think the Rangers two games at Yankee Stadium will make them the first team to host two. Oh wait sorry those are home games for the Devils and Islanders, even though as a Devils season ticket holder I was clearly told that the entire stadium isn’t allocated for Devils fans.

    Also the hair color is looking VERY natural these days Gary. #burn

    Give the Devils back their Kovalchuk draft pick, jerk. #anotherburn

      I believe the Devils and Islanders are the ones technically hosting the Rangers.

      • thecheeman - Sep 19, 2013 at 5:22 PM

        Yes I said that, but it was sarcastic because if they’re giving half the tickets to the Rangers how is it really a Devils game. Professional sports leagues do this for marquee teams all the time.

        It’s always the Giants, or Niners, or Steelers who get to go to London for an “away” game, so they have the advantage of a full slate of home games.

        The Giants got to play a “road game” against the Saints in the Meadowlands after Katrina.

    “Here’s Where The Ice Will Be… ” Right in the middle. Wow. Who saw that coming?!?

    Well jeez that was Katrina. I don’t think that really counts…
