The Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues renew an old playoff rivalry tonight, and it will start with the Blackhawks in the shadow of the Arch in St. Louis. This really is a battle of two teams trying to get healthy at just the right time while trying to find their form.
The Blackhawks won four straight without Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews before basically not showing up for the final two games, while the Blues have lost six straight and were barraged by injuries in the finals weeks costing them the #1 seed in the Central and a date with the Blackhawks.
The Blues won the first three games this season while the Hawks dominated in the final two matchups without it’s stars. Everyone was expecting to see this as a possible 2nd round matchup but due to the Blues collapse we get this in this in the first round.
