Hitchcock thinks Backes will return 'in the next two or three games'

The St. Louis Blues played a valiant Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks without captain David Backes.

Brent Seabrook suspended 3 games by NHL for his awful hit on David Backes

Brent Seabrook will sit the next three games of the Blackhawks vs Blues series after raising the boom on David Backes.

Another drive is alive to get Drake into Hockey Hall of Fame

A group of local businessmen is making another push to have Clare Drake inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the builder’s category.

Drake, who influenced scores of coaches — among them current NHL bench bosses Mike Babcock, Ken Hitchcock and Barry Trotz — richly deserves to have his place in the Hall, but it’s up to one of the 18 selectors to nominate him and again work at selling him, even if he’s a hockey pioneer. 348 more words
