United Center, 2002.
The Madhouse on Madison is uncomfortable because the visiting St. Louis Blues are about 10 minutes away from taking a commanding 3-1 lead in their best-of-7 playoff series against the hometown Chicago Blackhawks.
A stoppage in play also means a break for radio broadcasters Chris Kerber and Kelly Chase, who put the headsets down for a brief respite from the action.
That's when they hear it:
M-M-M-M-M Miller beer!!!!!! Get your M-M-M-M-M Miller beer!!!!! KELLY CHASE do YOU want a M-M-M-M-M Miller beer??!!
The St. Louis Blues have expressed interest in free agent forward Ilya Kovalchuk, general manager Doug Armstrong told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Friday.
"Always looking to improve our team," Armstrong told the newspaper. "We're like all teams. [Kovalchuk] is 35 years old, there's risk involved with players of that age. But he could be Jaromir Jagr. He could start slowing down at 41. Or he could come back and hit the wall. You never know.
"But there's certainly intrigue there because he's been such a dominant player internationally and he was a hell of a player when he left [the NHL]."

Armstrong looking to improve through free agency or trades
Blues General Manager said ownership is committed to improving the club
The St. Louis Blues are on the hunt for a top center in free agency, and general manager Doug Armstrong has the financial backing to get one.
