The Chicago Blackhawks are back and the city is getting into the spirit. The team will host a special red carpet event to launch its home-opener on Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues. Each player will be introduced before walking out on a red carpet between Gates 2 and 3 at 5 p.m. On Saturday night, the InterContinental Hotel on Chicago's Magnificent Mile lit up its landmark dome in the team's black and red colors as the Blackhawks battled the Kings in Los Angeles.
