After squeaking a shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night at the UC, it was time to hit the road again and venture into St Louis for a Sunday afternoon tilt against the Blues. The game on Friday marked the last time the Wings and Hawks will play each other as divisional rivals with Detroit heading east next year.
St Louis lost on Friday night, which meant that the Hawks clinched the central division and now the sights are set on the President’s Trophy. Friday’s shootout victory gave the Wings a much needed point to stay within a playoff spot in the western conference.
