Lindbloom’s View: These Dog Days of August

By Rich Lindbloom

Life is filled with unsearchable mysteries. Do the pink Good and Plenty’s taste better than the white ones? (If not, why do I always go for the pink ones?) Concomitantly, why do I shy away from the chocolate M&M’s? We actually had a guy at work who only ate the blue ones!

The Chicago Blackhawks sported a shuffled lineup Tuesday night in St. Louis. Unfortunately, the result was the same uninspired play that marked Sunday’s loss to Vancouver.

On this night, T.J. Oshie led the way as the Blues prevailed 3-0. In addition to winning new coach Ken Hitchcock’s debut, St. Louis handed the ‘Hawks their second straight loss.

The Blues opened the scoring at the 8:15 mark of the period. Kevin Shattenkirk brought the puck into the ‘Hawks zone and easily skated away from John Scott’s attempt to halt the play. Shattenkirk found Vladimir Sobotka headed for the net, and Sobotka was able to use some second effort to muscle the puck past Corey Crawford. Read more »
