Blackhawks Convention opening night fun and information

I do have many more pictures and video from the opening night, but I'll leave you with just a few for now. (I videoed the complete player/alumni/front office introductions, but it's a sizable file and it keeps stalling out mid-upload.)

32 - John Scott
37 - Nick Leddy
28 - Jake Dowell
42 - Shawn Lalonde

Fans having fun as they wait for the Second City event

Note: video quality for the following videos is not great. I wasn't in the main ballroom, so I was filming off an auxiliary video feed.

Longtime fans said it just didn't feel quite the same without Pat Foley calling the games, so the team had Foley call that fateful Stanley Cup-winning goal...

And everybody says they wanted to see the red lamp go on after Patrick Kane's Stanley Cup-winning goal. Well, tonight, everybody got that opportunity to see Kane light the lamp:

The other big event of the night was the Second City production with several team players. The Second City crew worked their improv magic, and Duncan Keith, Patrick Sharp, Troy Brouwer and Brent Seabrook all lent a hand:
