I’m too nervous about tonight to write a real preview.
Play like you have some good goddamn sense — okay, Blackhawks? Play like you CARE.
Chicago lost against Montreal 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday
St. Louis won against Colorado 3-1 on Tuesday
CHI: Forward Patrick Sharp might be in the lineup tonight — the first game since he injured his knee. He’ll see how it feels after warmups tonight. (via @TramyersCSN) Forward Troy Brouwer is now day-to-day after injuring his shoulder in last night’s game against Montreal. Forward Dave Bolland (concussion) is considered day-to-day, though progress is said to be slow. Defenseman Jordan Hendry (knee surgery) is out for the season. (nhl.com)
STL: Forward David Perron (concussion) is out. (nhl.com)
Duncan Keith, CHI: â€˜â€˜Itâ€™s not good enough to get the one point. Weâ€™ll take it, but we know we can start better. Whether it was nerves or I donâ€™t know what, the start wasnâ€™t good enough.â€™â€™ (Chicago Sun-Times)
David Backes, STL: â€œThereâ€™s plenty to play for, and whenever you get a rival team like Chicago, if you can spoil their postseason hopes, thereâ€™s plenty more to play for. In their building, they get a lot of support. We expect them to have a good game, and we need to match their intensity.â€ (STLtoday.com)
