NHL gets the snow globe game the NFL was hoping for

AP

Nearly four weeks ago, the NFL was hoping for just enough snow to make the Super Bowl look great on TV but not so much that it created major problems getting to and from MetLife Stadium.

Tonight, the NHL is getting at Soldier Field what the NFL was hoping for.  And then some.

In latest installment of the NHL’s Stadium Series, the Blackhawks are hosting the Penguins in Chicago.  The snow is falling, and it looks great on the HD broadcast being served up by our friends at NBC.

After one period, the home team leads, 1-0.

So dial up your local NBC affiliate and tune in.  There’s plenty of hockey left, and the snow keeps falling.

For those on the East Coast, enjoy it while it’s still not in the East Coast.  Right after you get home from your mandatory winter-storm-is-coming-so-we-must-buy-all-the-bread-and-milk run.
