Did you notice? The Blues passed the Blackhawks in the standings


Yep, here’s how it looks after last night’s games:


The way things look now, there’s a good chance the Blues and Blackhawks will meet in the second round of the playoffs. And considering how close those teams are in terms of quality, home-ice advantage could easily be the deciding factor in that series.

OK, fine, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. It’s fun to imagine possible match-ups though.

Chicago can reclaim top spot in the Central tonight when it visits Vancouver to play the struggling Canucks. The Blues will be left with four games in hand though.
