The St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks have played each other to a 2-2 tie in their Western Conference Quarterfinal series. The first four contests have been about as close as can be, with three of them going to overtime and the remaining game going to Chicago via a 1-0 final.
Four games. Four one-goal victories.
The margin for error is remarkably small between these two teams. Both the ‘Hawks and Blues entered the season with Stanley Cup aspirations, and with good reason. Now only one team will be able to advance out of the first round, and the series has taken on the life of a Western Conference Final because of it.
St. Louis had a chance to put Chicago on the brink of elimination in Games Three and Four, but failed to do so. The winner of Game Five will have the chance to close out the opposing team in Game Six, so the tempo and intensity should be high in this one. Looking for how to catch the contest online?
