The Blackhawks got a trouncing from the Minnesota Wild/North Stars during the 2016 NHL Stadium Series Alumni and and outdoor games at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. A fun time, though, because outdoor hockey is something different and a big deal for fans. There were plenty of people at both games from both sides. I also appreciated the fact that it wasn't -20 degrees out all weekend.
