Blues Collapse In Chicago

Posted by willp on April 28, 2014

The St. Louis Blues allowed four goals in the third period to lose their fourth straight to the Chicago Blackhawks, 5-1, eliminating them from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

St. Louis went 0-for-6 on the power play, yet Chicago scored on its first man-power advantage on wrist shot by Jonathan Toews. Patrick Sharp scored his first goal of the series less than two minutes later on a breakaway despite taking a high stick.

Andrew Shaw and Duncan Keith added goals later in the period to crush the Blues, as they fell to a defending champion for a second straight season after having a 2-0 series lead.

Chicago advances to the conference semifinals to await the winner of the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild series.
