War on Ice

It’s RIVALRY NIGHT in St. Louis which usually means The People vs Soap. But tonight the Blackhawks were in town in a huge divisional matchup for people who are very concerned about regular season games. Entering tonight, the Blues had a game in hand and trailed the Hawks by three points in the standings. If you’re hoping for home ice and/or a division title this is one you want to have.

This one looked like almost every game that the Hawks have played in the Drink Scotch center over the last six years or so. Chicago grabs a point they probably didn’t deserve and St. Louis probably isn’t happy about giving away. Thems the breaks. To the turnstiles we go.

Natural Stat Trick

That was certainly a throwback. I was almost sure those kinds of games were pretty much relegated to the past but apparently David Backes’ mere presence made everyone so angry tonight that we took a trip back in time. A feisty one for sure, but one in which the Blackhawks answered their head coach with an important divisional road win.

It’s a late-hate so let’s just get to some observations about this one.
