Classic Practice

Office a little quiet today as people prepare for tonight?'s got you covered, as they're broadcasting the Blackhawks and Red Wings as they hit the ice at Wrigley Field for practice today, starting right now.

Check out all the action here.

The two teams flew into Chicago last night after a 4-0 win for the Wings at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, ending the Blackhawks record 9-game winning streak. After a strong first 10 minutes, Detroit dominated the Hawks and took advantage of some ill-tempered penalties to earn the victory and set up the grudge match tomorrow.
