I live in Chicago. What happens if the pens and Hawks overlap?

I wonder if the local stations have exclusive hockey rights (like how CBS is blacked out when the Bears play) such that when the hawks play I'll miss all hockey.
You'll be fine. The NHL has it set up so every game will be on either NBCSN NBC or CNBC
I live in Minneapolis, and the LA / Stl game was on CNBC. Yes, the Detroit game was blacked out until after Minneapolis game ended. So really, the only way you'll be blacked out is if: The Pens are supposed to be on the same channel right after Chicago plays and Chicago has a long OT game

Not ideal, but better than nothing -- I think you can also stream online via their website
