You couldn’t blame the St. Louis Blues if they entered tonight’s Game 3 vs. the Chicago Blackhawks with revenge on their mind after this hit resulted in David Backes being knocked out for at least tonight’s game and for Brent Seabrook being suspended for three games.
However, Ryan Reaves thinks the best revenge would be eliminating the defending Stanley Cup champions and Central Division rivals and have them shine up their golf clubs.
Ryan Reaves: “We can go send them packing, shining up the golf clubs a little bit. I think that would be the best revenge right now.”

The Blues held serve on their home ice with clutch goals late in the third period in both games and later winning in overtime to take a 2-0 series lead, but now the series shifts to Chicago where the Blackhawks will hope the fans in the United Center will give them an edge as they look to cut their deficit in half.
