NHL Playoffs 2014, Blackhawks at Blues: live stream, start time, TV info and more

The Chicago Blackhawks start off their Stanley Cup defense on Thursday night on the road against the St. Louis Blues. Chicago was injured down the stretch, but they are expected to get Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews back, which could lead to a difficult outing for netminder Ryan Miller.

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock understands the challenge ahead, and he is hoping for a big performance from Miller in goal.

We’re going to need our goalie to be great,” Hitchcock said, via ESPN.com. “He’s shown the ability to get into people’s heads if he plays the way he can.”

It is going to be one of the most intriguing of the first-round match ups, so we will have to see who gets the upper hand after Game 1.
