The Chicago Blackhawks and Comcast SportsNet have announced the complete schedule for GAME ON!: The Home Series, a season long, seven game home series that will be televised on Comcast SportsNet. The live, high-definition telecasts begin this Sunday, November 11, as the Blackhawks take on the Red Wings, one of two featured televised home games between the arch rivals.

“Our goal in putting home games back on television is to bring the excitement and energy of our great team back to Blackhawk fans,” said Blackhawks Chairman W. Rockwell “Rocky” Wirtz. “We know that the more our fans are able to see the action of games, the more they will want to come out to the United Center and experience it firsthand.”

The series includes games against division foes the Nashville Predators and the St. Louis Blues, the Calgary Flames with perennial All-Star Jarome Iginla and visitors from the west coast including the Phoenix Coyotes and the San Jose Sharks. The full schedule is as follows:

  • Sunday, November 11 6:00 p.m. vs. Detroit Red Wings
  • Friday, November 30 7:30 p.m. vs. Phoenix Coyotes
  • Sunday, December 9 6:00 p.m. vs. Calgary Flames
  • Wednesday, December 26 7:30 p.m. vs. Nashville Predators
  • Sunday, January 6 6:00 p.m. vs. Detroit Red Wings
  • Friday, March 7 7:30 p.m. vs. San Jose Sharks
  • Sunday, March 23 2:00 p.m. vs. St. Louis Blues

The seven game home series will be presented by the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Chevy Dealers.

“Comcast SportsNet is excited to offer all seven of the Blackhawk’s GAME ON! series throughout the 2007-08 season,” said James J. Corno, President of Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

“In addition to home games being presented in crystal-clear high-definition, we will deliver the experience of what it’s like to be at a Blackhawks game at the United Center with live, on-site coverage during the pre and post-game show, locker room access and player interviews, on-ice/in-game player access, along with a number of additional in-game elements fans will certainly appreciate. With a big thanks to our advertising partner Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Chevy Dealers, Chicago sports fans are in for a television experience like never before.”

Prior to each of the seven home game telecasts, Comcast SportsNet will air “Chevy Blackhawks Pre-Game Live” featuring live reports from the United Center. The games will be immediately followed by locker room interviews and head coach Denis Savard’s press conference on “Blackhawks Post Game Live.”

“Chevy is proud to bring the Blackhawks into the homes of the millions of fans throughout the Chicago area,” said Tom Gollinger, President of the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana Chevy Dealers Association and Dealer/Owner of Woodfield Chevrolet. “The Blackhawks are a great complement to the Chevy brand, matching our drive to succeed and exhibiting spirited performances every day on the ice.”

Those in attendance at the game on November 11 will join the team and special guests in celebrating this season’s inaugural home telecast. Live music will be featured throughout the main concourse before and after the game and fans will enjoy period breaks throughout the night to mark the occasion with celebration.
