The first of the Stadium Series games is taking place this weekend at TCF Bank stadium in Minnesota, the state of hockey, and the Wild and Blackhawks look great amid this visual spectacle.

On Saturday, the teams took to the ice for a practice, but the headline event of the day was the Alumni game.

The game itself, between the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks, takes place Sunday at 3:30 Eastern.
