The Chicago Blackhawks could get a big boost from playing the St. Louis Blues.
The Chicago Blackhawks are in the play-in round. They are going to begin their series against the Edmonton Oilers on August 1st. Before that, they are going to have an exhibition game against the defending Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues. The game will be played on Wednesday, July 29th at 5:30 pm. It is a chance for the Blackhawks to feel very good about themselves going into the Edmonton five-game series.
The Hawks and Blues form one of the best rivalries in the National Hockey League. They have had some sweet battles over the years as they were both very good hockey teams for the better part of the last decade. In fact, the Hawks and Blues have combined for four of the last ten Stanley Cup titles. Even in the regular season, each team brings their best in this matchup. That should be no different for this exhibition game.
