The opener of this Western Conference First Round series will be hard to top from an entertainment standpoint. Alexander Steen's goal 26 seconds into triple overtime gave the St. Louis Blues a hard-fought victory against the rival Chicago Blackhawks, but the stakes only get higher in Game 2 on Saturday at Scottrade Center. Each team has positives to take into the next meeting.
