On Tuesday the Blackhawks announced their broadcast schedule for the 2016 preseason.
The Hawks will have to compete with the end of the MLB regular season on Sept. 28 and 30 with the playoff-bound Cubs starting a few minutes after 6 pm CT on both nights. Coincidentally, the Cubs are in Pittsburgh on Sept. 28. There’s a chance the final two preseason games – and beginning of the NHL regular season – could compete with postseason baseball again this year.
Sunday, Oct. 2 will be a great day for sports bars in Chicago. The Bears host the Detroit Lions at noon, the Cubs are in Cincinnati for their regular season finale at 2 pm CT and the Hawks are in Detroit to face the Red Wings at 5 pm CT.
