I'm a St. Louisan trying really hard to follow the Cards and Blues while living in Atlanta. I've been shockingly successful.

I've been the blog manager for St. Louis Game Time since January of 2013, and have been writing for the site since July of 2009. I am also the associate editor at Bloguin's flagship site Puck Drunk Love, and I occasionally post on my own blog, Thrashing the Blues.

I was a season ticket holder and fan of the Atlanta Thrashers before relocation, but I've been a Blues fan all of my life. Whatever pessimism I have learned from sports, I have learned from those two teams. They have taught me surprisingly well.

The Blues have let a two game lead slip away from them for the second year in a row. Will tonight's game break the deja vu?

Tonight the Blues will determine if they're coming back to St. Louis with a commanding 3-1 lead, or if they're returning with a 2-2 tie and a momentum shift to Chicago.

David Backes Returns To Lineup For Game Four

Rutherford's working on confirmation for tonight, but it looks like the captain is back. I have mixed emotions on this, obviously. But I do think he may be what the Blues need to get over the hump.

The Blues weren't able to go up 3-0 on their rivals from the north, but a split would give St. Louis a chance to close out at home.

The Blues will be out for a bit of revenge tonight - on the scoreboard.

Backes out, Berglund in?

We may be escaping Steve Ott as a first line center here, folks. On the other hand, the Hawks have Sheldon Brookbank to replace Brent Seabrook. I think we come out ahead.

The Madhouse on Madison may be more insane than usual during games three and four of this close and physical series.

Brent Seabrook Suspended Three Games For Hit On David Backes

This is about what I was expecting for the hit - regular season, maybe a game or two more. Three games in the playoffs is huge, and he's a very important player for the Blackhawks. This could throw a wrench in their gameplan for the rest of this series.

Talk about poking the bear - this kind of behavior - playoffs or not - is going to lead to repercussions.

Seabrook To Have Phone Hearing For Backes Hit

Here's the English translation from Google Translate: Unsurprisingly, Brent Seabrook will be explained with Stéphane Quintal (phone) for his actions at the expense of David Backes A phone hearing means a five game suspension at the maximum.

Seabrook's Reaction To Concussing Backes: LOL

Brent Seabrook may've tried to say all of the right things after the game, but right after the hit he didn't seem too crushed.
