St. Louis win gives Blackhawks the blues

Vladimir Tarasenko and St. Louis were in trouble Saturday before a vicious hit by Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook provided an opening for the Blues. That little crack was all St. Louis needed to put another dent in the Blackhawks’ bid for a second straight Stanley Cup title.

Seabrook’s blow to the head of David Backes led to a 6-on-4 power play for St. Louis that ended with Tarasenko’s tying goal with 6.4 seconds left in regulation, and low-scoring defenseman Barret Jackman ended the game with a drive through traffic, giving the Blues their second straight 4-3 overtime victory over the Blackhawks and a 2-0 series lead. St. Louis took the opener in triple-overtime and fought off a Chicago rally in a game that began less than 39 hours later. Game 3 is Monday night in Chicago. Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford tossed his equipment around in the locker room before meeting with reporters. He said, “I had my pads together, but there was a little space there and it just kind of squeezed through.”
