The Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins face off on Saturday night at Soldier Field on NBC, and they will play in snowy, cold conditions in the home of the NFL’s Bears.
If that doesn’t get you wistful for football, the sight of Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury wearing a mask painted like a Steelers helmet might do the trick.
“I like it,” Fleury said of the mask, according to Steelers.com. “I wasn’t sure how it would come out. I am happy about it. I am trying to bring a little of the Steelers into the football stadium.”
The return of regular season football is a little more than six months away. That’s a lot of time still to pass, but two first-place teams playing in the snow and under the lights in Chicago is a pretty cool way to spend a few hours.
