For whatever reason when the Blues play in Chicago they seem to have great difficulty getting rebounds. One shot and done. Chicago D collapses in and clears or the goalie holds the puck.
Petro another poor game tonight, first goal on him. Blues would've tied it but started too late coming back. Good that they always believe they can come back and win.
Elliott made some great saves but goals 2 and 3 he probably wants back. Especially 2.
Stewart-Berglund-Schwartz kinda sucked.
Dead on, that line was invisible and played poor especially on that 1st goal. I think Hitch saw that in the 3rd and swapped 21 for 17. I think Cole played a decent game and may have out played Petro a tad. Could it be fatigue or lack of conditioning? Possibly, but that cant be an excuse.
