Game 4 . Chicago at St.Louis

The Blues change things up this game. Rather than playing a defensive style against the much more offensive Hawks, the Blues decided to play their 3-2 and just go for it. Could not be any worse than last game. The change of strategy, or maybe just dice luck, seems to have worked. The Blues were chasing the rabbit for most of the game as they could never get a lead. But midway through the third period, Alex Pietrangelo of all people, ties the game and Filip Forsberg scores to give the Blues the lead. They then go into a defensive shell and hang on against a very powerful Chicago lineup.
Max Pacioretty scored twice for Chicago and the Blues got goals from five different players.
