If the St. Louis Blues need inspiration, how about the unlikely return of a character guy?
Steve Ott is suiting up against considerable odds as the Blues take on the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3, which is mere moments from beginning.
Ott hasn’t played since Dec. 5, and there was at least some reason to wonder if he’d ever play again. Instead, he’s getting back in the mix as the Blues attempt to shake off a painful loss.
Impressive, although it’s unlikely that the Blackhawks will merely allow Ott to ease back in.
