Blackhawks 'Stanley Cup Champions 2015' banner raised at the UC

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - If the Chicago Cubs weren't enough to keep the city excited, the Blackhawks will also begin defending the Stanley Cup Wednesday night.

The team raised their newest Stanley Cup Champions banner at the United Center before their game with the New York Rangers, which started at 7 p.m.

The Chicago Blackhawks made some cuts in the offseason for money reasons. However, they are still a powerful team and have a great shot at holding the Stanley Cup again in 2016.
