St. Louis Game Time's Flashback Friday: 2003 Western Conference Quarterfinal, Game 1

Remember when the Blues were capable of beating the Blackhawks in a playoff series? Good times.

I will always remember the 1993 sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks. Ed Belfour pitching a holy hissy fit will forever be something that I treasure, even if those front pages of the Post-Dispatch that I saved are lost to the ages.

The next time the Blues met the Hawks in the playoffs it was in 2003 under the coaching genius of current Chicago coach Joel Quenneville. A few years before he was fired because that's the kind of shit that our hockey team does, Coach Q was racking up the wins. Tonight is the third against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference quarterfinals.

If you have an NHL Vault account or GameCenter Live account, log in, select classic games, and then NHL playoff classics. Head to the April 23rd, 2003 game. I'm not going to spoil the ending here, so go on, sync up for a 7:00 puck drop, and enjoy one of those blasts from the past that you've come to expect from August in the off season.
