The Blues dominated play in Chicago, but had to settle for the tie, and were fortunate to get that. Chris Pronger scored with 2:01 left to lift the Blues to a 1-1 tie with Chicago. Blackhawk goaltender Jocelyn Thibault single-handedly kept Chicago in the game, making 35 saves. He was screened by three players on Pronger’s game-tying goal. He stopped everything else, including two shots late in the third when he had lost his stick and his catching glove. The Blues outshot the Blackhawks 36-11, tying a Chicago franchise record for fewest shots. Tony Amonte scored for Chicago in the first two minutes of the game. Detroit won on Sunday, trimming one point off the Blues’ lead in the Western Conference. The Blues now lead by five points. They host Toronto on Wednesday.
