Hawks open preseason in Winnipeg

Though it seems as if last year's dream season just ended, the Blackhawks Stanley Cup win created a party that's raged all summer long. As the summer officially becomes fall as of yesterday, it's time to wake up from the hangover (especially, we hope, in the case of Patrick Kane) and prepare for the title defense for the Hawks, beginning with their first preseason game at 7 p.m. tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The game will take place in Jonathon Toews' hometown of Winnipeg, the once (and future?) home of the Jets, and will air on Comcast Sportsnet.

Though Tailgate will have a full season preview of the drastically revamped Blackhawks (We're as guilty of enjoying the championship and taking the summer off) before the team's season opening game Oct. 7 in Colorado, you can check out the roster for tonight's game (and the first start for new goalie Marty Turco) and the first round of training camp cuts here.
