It didn't take much time for the St. Louis Blues to score in the second period of Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks. Already leading 1-0 at home, St. Louis extended its lead to 2-0 before even a minute had passed in the second period.
Just 20 seconds in, Chicago's Daniel Carcillo got a penalty for kneeing the Blues' Ian Cole, putting the Blackhawks at a disadvantage pretty quickly. Goalie Corey Crawford was unable to hold off the pressure, and Chris Stewart scored his third goal of the season for St. Louis just 83 seconds into the new period. We still have another 20 minutes to go, but it's looking like the Blackhawks may lose once again on the road unless they charge back hard.
