Four days after the Bears’ dramatic win over the Vikings, hockey took center stage at Soldier Field.
The Blackhawks and Penguins held a press conference at the 50-yard line Thursday afternoon in an effort to drum up interest for the teams’ March 1 meeting, one of six outdoor games on the 2013-14 NHL schedule.
There was no ice or goals to be seen on Thursday, only an outline of where the rink will be constructed. There were a few sticks on hand, though, and Chicago defensemen Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith used them to launch pucks through the Solider Field goalposts.
Check out the blueliners’ respective attempts below, and see if you can spot the flying puck in Seabrook’s photo.
