Tale of the Tape: St. Louis Blues visit Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday Night Rivalry

The Chicago Blackhawks may be the defending Stanley Cup champions, but they find themselves looking up at the St. Louis Blues as the teams prepare to face off in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2). The Blues come to Chicago leading not only the Blackhawks and the rest of the Central Division; they're on top of the overall standings as they chase the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
