CSN to air 3 classic games in November

* * With the NHL season still on hold, thanks to a dispute between the owners and players and the ensuing players' lock-out, Comcast SportsNet Chicago has found a fun way to air some hockey games during the month of November. CSN Chicago will broadcast three "Chicago Blackhawks Classics" this month. The first game to be shown is a vintage black & white telecast from December 11, 1971 of the Chicago Blackhawks at Toronto Maple Leafs, featuring NHL icons Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, and Tony Esposito. This special broadcast will air this Friday, November 16th at 7:00pm. The second game will be the NHL All-Star Game from January 19, 1991, which was held at the Chicago Stadium, two days after the start of the "Operation Desert Storm" Gulf War, and featuring Blackhawks Chris Chelios, Steve Larmer, and Jeremy Roenick. This game will air on Tuesday, November 20th at 7:00pm. The third game will be the "NHL Winter Classic" between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks, which was played on January 1, 2009 within Wrigley Field. This broadcast will air Tuesday, November 27th at 7:00pm. "Chicago Blackhawks Classics" will be hosted by Comcast SportsNet's Pat Boyle, who will be joined in-studio by such guests as Pat Foley, Eddie Olczyk, Denis Savard, and Bob Verdi.

I will certainly be setting the DVR for those 1st 2.
