Blues Lose To Hawks 6-5

Stop me if you've heard this one before.

- Blues get off to a great start, look good, seem to be in command.

- Just like that the Blues fall apart. They give up a ton of goals. They play like dogshit.

- Blues, when everything seems down and out, they start a comeback. It's slow, but it's there. And it gets a little momentum.

- And just when you think they don't have enough time to pull the comeback off, they get right on the doorstep, pull nearly even.

- But in the end it was too little too late and it's obvious to everyone that as time expires, they just dug too deep a hole to climb out of.

Am I talking about the 2009-10 season or Wednesday night's game against the Blackhawks where the Blues scored first, allowed four straight goals in the first period, got down 6-1, somehow clawed back to 6-4 as time was running out, Brad Boyes scored on a penalty shot with half a minute left after Andy McDonald took a stick to the ear on a breakaway, yet Chicago held on for a 6-5 victory.

Thanks Blues for providing a microcosm of the entire season in just 60 minutes.

Ok, and Keith Tkachuk retired. More on him in the morning.
