Blackhawks At Blues Game Seven Morning Open Thread: Sudden Death

Are Blues' fans worries about tonight well founded?

Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

Game six was crushing for Blues fans - to see the team blow a 3-1 lead, and an opportunity to close the series out, in such spectacular fashion was incredible. The Blackhawks thrive in situations where they're on the mat. The Blues? That talk of a "killer instinct" being a thing this year seems to have been just that - talk.

Tonight is their night to prove us wrong. Do it.

Twenty-three years ago, on April 25th, the Blues were on the verge of sweeping the Blackhawks out of the first round. The circumstances were different - game four of a sweep is a lot different from a game seven - but in double overtime Craig Janney did the improbable.

That Ed Belfour flip-out is one of the best memories of my childhood. Tonight's a great chance for the Blues to create some new memories for a new generation - preferably some that involve an improbable win.

This is your morning open thread. Check back later on for your Lighting the Lamp, your preview, and the GDT. While your'e waiting, head over to Second City Hockey to see what their confidence level is. Game sevens are rough on everyone.
