He was on the ice for the Blues this morning though—a great sign for St. Louis’ top-four.
Jackman left the ice too but like Pietrangelo and Steen, no issues. Get on, quick work, get off. #stlblues

Pietrangelo has had a strange year. He was under the microscope like never before during the Winter Olympics, and now he’ll be one of the most important players for St. Louis in a series that will be one of the most heavily watched in the first round. The Blues have a solid following to be sure, but the ‘Hawks have tacked on countless fans by winning two Stanley Cups in the last four seasons.
St. Louis is still looking for that elusive banner though, and Pietrangelo will be a big part of anything they’re able to accomplish.
