The Blues and Blackhawks resume their playoff series tonight in Chicago with Game Three from United Center. St. Louis has taken the first two contests, both by a 4-3 score in overtime. Barret Jackman got the winner in Saturday's game. The puck drops tonight at 7:30.
The Blues still aren't sure if captain David Backes will be able to suit up tonight. Backes sustained a vicious illegal hit from Chicago's Brent Seabrook Saturday and was knocked out of the game. Seabrook was suspended for three games for the infraction.
