The Blackhawks are down early in St. Louis.

The Chicago Blackhawks have played a little more like their early-season selves over the last couple of weeks -- they've won seven of 10 and three in a row -- but they still entered the night 10 points behind the St. Louis Blues in the Central Division. And so far on Tuesday night, it does not look like Chicago is going to be able to chip into that lead, as the Blues have a 2-0 lead at the first intermission.
