Blues visit Blackhawks on Wednesday Night Rivalry

The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup three times in the past six seasons, but they enter this week’s Wednesday Night Rivalry game against the St. Louis Blues (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports) looking up at their Central Division rival in the standings.

The Blackhawks have been up and down through their first 12 games, but they've won six in a row at United Center after an opening night loss to the New York Rangers. Despite numerous injuries, the Blues have been able to stay near the top of the division thanks to the goaltending of Jake Allen and Brian Elliott, as well as the scoring of emerging star Vladimir Tarasenko.

St. Louis is beginning a four-game trip that ends on Nov. 14, when the Blackhawks visit Scottrade Center.

Ken Hitchcock just threw the number out there off the top of his head.

Of course, the St. Louis Blues coach has so much information packed into that head, maybe it shouldn't be that surprising.

But when talking recently about his offensive leader, right wing Vladimir Tarasenko, Hitchcock made an observation about Tarasenko's scoring tendencies that appeared to be an estimate.

It wasn't.

"Those goals he scores, even if there's just 30 or whatever, I guarantee you two-thirds of them will be important goals again," Hitchcock said. "That's critical for us."

And that's bad news for the Chicago Blackhawks, who will host the Blues in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Recollections of Ruggiero: 'One in a million'

Angela Ruggiero emerged as the United States' finest defenseman during her 15-year career that resulted in her becoming the fourth woman inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Ruggiero won four Olympic medals, including gold at the 1998 Nagano Games, and is one of five U.S. players to compete in four Olympics (Jenny Potter, Julie Chu, Chris Chelios and Keith Tkachuk). She also helped Harvard win a national championship in 1999 and was named the country's top women's collegiate hockey player in 2004.

Ruggiero's extraordinary accomplishments also earned her entry into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Dec. 17.

Jon Lane - Staff Writer takes a look at each of the seven individuals who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 9.

Angela Ruggiero was 15 in the summer of 1995 when she reported to Lake Placid, N.Y., to try out for the inaugural United States junior national women's team. She caught the eye of Ben Smith, the women's coach at Northeastern University who had been asked by USA Hockey to select a group to play in a friendly series against Finland.

Ruggiero was a bit green, Smith recalled, playing with women in their 20s and early 30s. But there was something about her that reminded him of arguably the finest defenseman in NHL history.
