Give this to NBC: The network knows how to play to a Chicago crowd.
The network announced Monday that Blackhawks defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook will make guest appearances in Tuesday's episode of "Chicago Fire."
The episode is titled "Virgin Skin," though there's no word on whether Keith and Seabrook will keep their shirts on for their appearances.
What we do know comes from a statement from NBC and the NHL.
"Shay (Lauren German) gets an unusual tip from Seabrook and Keith, friends of Clarke (Jeff Hephner), who stop by Molly’s, the local bar that is co-owned by several members from firehouse 51."
Why now? Because the Blackhawks play Pittsburgh at Soldier Field on Saturday, of course. The game will also be mentioned in the episode.
