The Chicago Blackhawks, as part of their "What's Your Goal?" campaign, brought the United Center atmosphere to a group of residents at Centennial Activity Center in Park Ridge, Ill.
Jennifer, who manages the center, told the Hawks her goal was to take a group of residents to a game at the United Center. However, the Hawks brought the game to them.
Hawks head coach Joel Quenneville along with assistant coaches Mike Kitchen and Kevin Dineen, TV play-by-play announcer Pat Foley, organist Frank Pellico, anthem singer Jim Cornelison and the ice crew all joined in to orchestrate a three-on-three pickup ball game at the senior home.
The Hawks mapped out a rink on the floor and had nets and goal lights, too. The residents wore red and white Hawks sweaters, with the white team coached by Dineen and Kitchen coaching the red team. Quenneville served as the referee.
