NHL is back on the ice; Time for #GirlPowerPlay

Tonight the National Hockey League (NHL) opens its regular season.  The 2013 Stanley Cup® Champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, will raise their second championship banner in four years at their opener against the Washington Capitals.  Teams are returning to the ice with new a conference and division alignment.  Now the Eastern Conference has two eight-team divisions and the Western Conference has two seven-team divisions.  There is also a new scheduling matrix that ensures that all 30 teams play in all 30 arenas at least once a season.  Here is the new conference and division alignment:


On October 2, in celebration of the start of the hockey season, we are dropping the puck on our online networking event, “#GirlPowerPlay.”  In ice hockey, a power play happens when one team has more men on the ice because the opposing team has one or more players in the penalty box.  Through this online event, we are going to connect women and help you all get more “players” than your competition to score!  Each Wednesday join us networking on Facebook (Heels & Helmets) or Twitter (@HeelsandHelmets) and share your expertise or the resources you need to take you career to the next level with #GirlPowerPlay.  We will make introductions to give you the resources that you need to beat the competition! Watch this video to learn more.

It is going to be an exciting season!  Six regular-season games will be played in outdoor baseball and football stadiums.  The Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, the Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic and the four-game 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ will all be played outside.  Here is the schedule:
