Blues, Blackhawks Clash Again

The Blues look to bounce back from Monday's loss to the Blackhawks as the teams play Game Four from Chicago tonight. St. Louis won the first two at home and holds a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The puck drops from United Center at 8:30.

The Blues hope to have captain David Backes in the lineup tonight against the Blackhawks. Backes missed Game Three after sustaining a vicious illegal hit from Chicago's Brent Seabrook on Saturday. Seabrook will miss tonight's game, serving the second of a three-game suspension.
