2. Squash the confidence of the Blues:  The St. Blues should be brimming with confidence over their victory against the Blackhawks. The Blackhawks want to reassure the Blues and everyone else in the NHL who is the top dog. The Blues stole a point and possible victory from the Blackhawks with a late goal from Alex Steen. Look for the Blackhawks to not have a defensive breakdown like the one that allowed Steen to score.

1. Avenge the “Brutal Loss”: Those were Coach Quenneville’s words when describing the first matchup between the Blackhawks and the Blues.  When Quenneville spoke in his meeting with the press after defeating the Carolina Hurricanes, he was still upset.  The Blackhawks coaches and players want to win this game more than any game this season. Expect a dominating effort from the Blackhawks especially Corey Crawford, Jonathan Toews, and Patrick Kane.

Is it cold in here or is it just me??-John Spartan said to Simon Phoenix at the end of Demolition Man. Spartan would go on to defeat Phoenix once and for all. Hopefully the United Center and Blackhawks are Ice cold because as everyone knows.  REVENGE is a dish that is best served COLD.
