Tonight, it begins. Round one, versus the Blues' most disliked, most hated rival. Chicago fans will tell you that this is a classic little brother/big brother relationship.
Just remember that the last time these two teams met in the playoffs, little brother kicked big brother's ass*.
Still, the past is the past. This is now, and the Blues have a chance to knock off the reigning Cup champions. With their best players back (sans T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund, who should return soon), this won't be a cakewalk. The Blues need to rebound, and who better to rebound against than the Blackhawks?
This is your gameday thread. Comment like you hate Chicago.
Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
