Blackhawks Wed Nov 05 2008

Winter Classic raffle begins today

winterclassic_150.jpgAs announced Monday, signups for the random drawing and the chance to purchase Winter Classic tickets begins today at 11 a.m. at the Blackhawk's website. Signup is limited to one entry per person.

Registration ends Nov. 28, and the lucky winners will have the chance to purchase tickets at an as-yet unannounced date, though I'd expect it to be a few days after the drawing is held.

Lost in the excitement of Halloween weekend and the election, the Hawks reeled off 3 wins last weekend to push their record to 6-3-3, their best start in 7 years. With a 5-day layoff before the next game Sunday against Calgary, Coach Joel Quenneville will continue tweaking the team's style at practice, though things have certainly been clicking on all cylinders lately. Look for a more indepth post soon examining just what has turned around so quickly for the Hawks lately.

I went to the game and took some really nice 2009 Winter Classic Photos. It was great to watch the game outside at Wrigley Field.
