Game Highlights:

First Period -

The Blues scored less than three minutes into tonight’s action. Vince Dunn dumped the puck in and went off on a line change. The puck took a fortunate Blues bounce and ended up on the stick of MacEachern. MacEachern backhanded the puck past Blackhawks’ starter Corey Crawford. 1-0 Blues on MacEachern’s fourth of the year. Vince Dunn (4) notched the only assist.

Jaden Schwartz scored his eighth goal of the year on the Blues power play. Patrick Kane was called for a trip. Not even 20 seconds into the man advantage, Alex Pietrangelo fired a shot towards the net. That shot was deflected by Schwartz and past Crawford. Pietrangelo (14) and Perron (17) with the assists on the play.

Shots after one period were all knotted at 10 a piece.

Second Period -

ZZZZ oh hey, you didn’t miss anything but the ‘Hawks did manage to outshoot the Blues 11-9. They might be dull, but they’re definitely effective and dull.

Third Period -

A little under midway through the period, Brayden Schenn scored the Blues third goal of the night. Nate Walker backhanded a puck over to Schenn who slapped the puck like it owed it lunch money. Crawford couldn’t do anything to stop it. Nathan Walker gets his first NHL assist with the Blues and Schwartz picks up his 14th.

The Blackhawks turned the puck over in their own zone and Tyler Bozak was there to capitalize. Bozak intercepted the pass intended out of the zone and skated it back in towards the goal. Bozak fired the puck on net and beat Crawford giving the Blues a four goal lead. Bozak netted his third of the year and he did all the work himself as it was an unassisted goal.

That was your final score 4-0. Patrick Kane had a point streak snapped, and as mentioned Jake Allen now has 20 shutouts with the Blues. Next up for the Blues is Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. Final shot totals for tonight...38-30 in favor of the Blues and no Chelsea Daggers to speak of.

Something, Something, Something, Twitter...

Seriously, wish I was kidding on this. I know it’s in Chicago and all but...

Whew. This is certainly something.

A very audible “Let’s go Blues” chant at UC. You hate to see it.

A submission from the “Holy Shit” department. These are really the best though.
