Blackhawks scoring assault chases Blues goalie in the first period

SHARE Blackhawks scoring assault chases Blues goalie in the first period

The Blackhawks may want to wear the lavendar practice jerseys they wore before Wednesday night’s game a bit more regularly. They started the game with a scoring onslaught from the home team that sent the Blues scrambling.

After opening up the game with three quick goals and a 3-1 lead, the Blackhawks allowed the Blues to inch a little closer with a goal. But the one goal difference didn’t last long, defenseman Brent Seabrook was dropped the puck with an open look at the Blues net.

The blast did more than just give the Blackhawks a 4-2 lead. It also chased Blues goalie Brian Elliott for good. Elliott had been taken out after the initial three goals, but returned to net after a short break. After Seabrook’s goal, Elliott went straight for the locker room.

Unfortunately for the Blues and Elliott’s backup Jake Allen, the Blackhawks weren’t done. This time it was Patrick Kane with the goal.

The Blackhawks would go into the first intermission with a 5-2 lead, getting goals from Seabrook, Kane, Teuvo Teravainen, Marko Dano and Andrew Shaw.
