Blues top Blackhawks, snap skid at 2 games – Washington Times

St. Louis Blues

We had to win one game to get things going back in the right direction, said Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo, who had two assists. Theres nothing better than playing against an opponent like this, division rival, big game for us. We know what theyve done, and coming in after losing to them in the playoffs last year certainly gives it a little bit of an extra edge. I thought we all stepped up to the plate. The Blues (3-3-1), who lost in six games to the Blackhawks in the first round of the playoffs last spring, had scored just once in losing back-to-back games to Anaheim and Vancouver. They had dropped three of four games, including a shootout defeat in Los Angeles. We hit a bit of a lull the last two games and we needed a great performance, and who better than our biggest rivals to bring it out of us, Blues captain David Backes said. Guys put together a heck of a 60-minute effort. Brian Elliott made 22 saves for St. Louis, including nine in the third period. Antti Raanta made 28 saves for the Blackhawks. The Blackhawks (4-2-1) have dropped two straight in regulation, falling again after being beaten in Nashville on Thursday. source:

Last season the Predators tried a campaign to Keep the Red Out where if you bought a ticket to a Predators/Blackhawks game, you had to buy one for a non-Predators/Blackhawks game later in the year. The deal was in some ways a success, because two of the three games were sellouts, though Hawks fans still dominated the crowds. Most of Thursday, the Predators official team Twitter had been informing fans about how to get rid of their red outfits for the evening’s game between the two teams. PSA on the red redemption: if it’s attached to someone’s head please don’t try to turn it in. #savethegingers #CHIvsNSH Nashville Predators (@PredsNHL) October 23, 2014 Below is the new campaign to make it harder for Chicago fans to go to Nashville games via email from the Predators: -Game was included in all season-ticket packages, to make sure the Loyal Legion had tickets to the game. -Pre-sale opportunities to season-ticket holders, first access to buy game individual game tickets (this game included) -Single-game buyers in viewing area opportunity to buy game through pre-sale codes -Individual tickets went on sale at Bridgestone Arena only, [so] people in Nashville would have opportunity to buy single game tickets (including this game), first -Following all of the above, tickets went on sale to the general public/outer market. And the promotions! – Free popcorn to any fans wearing gold -Turn in any red item to Fan Information and get a Preds ticket voucher (one voucher per person). Red items will be donated to the Chicago Rescue Mission -Turn in a Hawks sweater and receive a Preds sweatshirt When it comes to the Predators or any NHL team if a building is full, a promotion clearly works. And there actually seemed to be fewer Blackhawks fans at the Thursday game than usual per the iPhone photo from the Preds press box from the start of the contest at the bottom of the page. But in this golden age of the Blackhawks, and Southwest Airlines, good luck in keeping their fans out of any building. View photo . source:
