The Blues showed the Chicago Blackhawks why they are now tops in the NHL. The St. Louis Blues defeated the Blackhawks 5-1 behind two Andy McDonald goals to move into first place in the Central division. Vladimir Sobotka, T.J. Oshie and Jason Arnott also added goals to pad the blues lead. Jaroslav Halak once again shut down the competition between the pipes saving 19 of 20 shots. The Blues look good heading into the final weeks of the season.
