Blues top Blackhawks 4-1 in first outdoor game at Busch Stadium

Doyle BarkerЯнв 04, 2017

The ninth annual NHL Winter Classic outdoor game features the Chicago Blackhawks taking on the St. Louis Blues at Busch Stadium, home of baseball's St. Louis Cardinals. "He sniffs out coverage issues and he jumps on it", Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said.

The breakaway save by Crawford was also negated by Tarasenko finally beating him a little more than halfway through the third. The team leading at the time play is stopped will be declared the victor and will be awarded two points in the standings.

Zac went into the Blues locker room for post game reaction after the historic win.

With all of those weather-related eventualities covered, the game itself promises to be an interesting one. He now has 12 goals against Chicago in 19 career regular season games.

A sellout crowd of 46,556 braved rain in the first period, as temperatures hovered in the mid 40's.

It was not long after that when Fabbri passed the puck ahead to Tarasenko, who backhanded it in front of the net, scoring off the skate of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson.

With the Blackhawks only leading the division by a single point over the Minnesota Wild and the Blues in a distant third, the two points on the line were significant, even if the focus was a huge event showcasing how big of a hockey town St. Louis has become. Blues Alexander Steen scores the "empty netter" for the final goal and win for the Blues. In throwing to said performance, NBC's Bob Costas made us all cringe in trying to work lyrics from "Hot in Herre" into his introduction of the St. Louis-born hip hop star.

Tarasenko has 18 goals on the seasons.

"It's no secret. He's got probably one of the best wristers in the league and everyone knows when he's out there", Crawford said.

Hitch went with the shades and tuque look during Winter Classic practice day on Sunday and then went all-in with the varsity jacket and trilby hat for the game. Jake Allen made 22 saves for the Blues.

The Blues trailed 1-0 at the intermission but came out in the second period and put nine shots on goal in the opening eight minutes.

"I thought we played a great game", Hitchcock said.

After the way 2016 began with the NFL uprooting the city's football team, St. Louis deserved to kick off 2017 with a bang. The slumping Blackhawks have lost five of their last six games.

The Blackhawks are now 1-4-0 in outdoor games. Chicago C Marcus Kruger has been placed on the injured list.
