The Chicago Blackhawks fell to the St. Louis Blues for the second time this season on Thursday night, losing 3-2 in a shootout. The Blackhawks got off to a fast start in the first period, but slowly faded away the rest of the game. Coach Joel Quenneville continued to switch up the Blackhawks' lines and this time it seemed to work to his disadvantage as the line combinations couldn't get anything going. The Blues now move to 5-1, while the Blackhawks fall to 4-1-2.
Here are a few notes from the game:
- Forward Marian Hossa led the way for the Blackhawks as he had one goal and one assist.
- Forward Brandon Pirri was the other goal scorer for the Blackhawks. Pirri scored his first career NHL goal on a play that showed good patience and positioning from the youngster.
- Blues Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester played a big factor in the game as his shots from the point accounted for two goals. Bouwmeester didn't get credited for any of the goals, but had two assists.
- Forwards Alex Steen and David Backes were the goal scorers for the Blues.
- Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford stopped 26 of 28 shots, while Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak stopped 27 of 29 shots. Both goalies played very well and kept their teams in the game.
The Blackhawks will remain at home as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
