Wings, Blackhawks to face-off on NBC
The start time for the Red Wings' game against the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center on Sunday, March 7, has been moved to 12:30 p.m. EST to accommodate NBC Sports’ “Game of the Week”.

This rivalry – no two NHL teams have played more regular-season games against each other – is once again in full bloom after Detroit got the better of Chicago last season in both the Western Conference finals and the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field.  

This season, Chicago has been led to the top of the Central Division and second place in the Western Conference by their young dynamic Olympic duo of American Patrick Kane and Canadian Jonathan Toews.

The Red Wings counter with their own talent-laden roster, including Olympians Henrik Zetterberg, Brian Rafalski, Nicklas Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk, Valtteri Filppula, Johan Franzen and Niklas Kronwall.

A fixture at the top of the standings for the past two decades and the two-time defending Western Conference champions, the Red Wings will head to Chicago in unfamiliar territory: battling for a playoff spot.

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING:
At least 13 days prior to the scheduled game, one game is selected for broadcast on NBC. All NBC games will be broadcast on Sundays and all games will be presented in HD. Games not flexed to NBC will be available to the teams’ regional carriers and remain at the originally announced start time.
