Blackhawks Fall to Blues 3-1



    Brian Elliott made 22 saves and Jaden Schwartz had his first two-goal game as the St. Louis Blues earned home-ice advantage for the first-round of the playoffs by defeating the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 Saturday night.

    The Blues won 12 of their last 15 games to capture fourth place in the Western Conference.

    Elliott and the Blues were helped by facing a Chicago lineup that was devoid of almost every regular.

    Ben Smith, who was playing in his first game of the season, scored for Chicago.
