New, comments

The Blues have home ice advantage in round one - will it do them any good this year?

The NHL has released their round one schedules for the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Blackhawks will visit the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night to begin their quest for a repeat Cup. Hopefully the Blues can put an end to that goal ASAP and make it out of the first round of the playoffs.

Here's the schedule - all times are Eastern:

Wednesday, April 13      9:30 p.m.        Chicago at St. Louis                NBCSN, SN360, TVA Sports
Friday, April 15              8 p.m.             Chicago at St. Louis                NBCSN, Sportsnet, TVA Sports
Sunday, April 17            3 p.m.             St. Louis at Chicago                NBC, Sportsnet, TVA Sports
Tuesday, April 19           9:30 p.m.        St. Louis at Chicago               NBCSN, Sportsnet, TVA Sports
*Thursday, April 21 TBD               Chicago at St. Louis                TBD
*Saturday, April 23 TBD               St. Louis at Chicago                TBD
*Monday, April 25 TBD               Chicago at St. Louis                TBD

The start times for Wednesday and next Tuesday are very late start times for a Central Division game; blame the national media and the Eastern Conference. At least both Chicago and St. Louis get hosed.

More dates will be released if they're needed.
