What would have been Vladimir Tarasenko's second goal of the game and a 2-1 Blues lead in the third period, turned in to a 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game Two of their playoff series on Friday night at Scottrade Center. Tarasenko's goal with 7:46 to go in the third period gave the Blues a 2-1 lead. But the Blackhawks challenged the goal, saying the Blues were off side earlier in the play. After a referee's review that took nearly five minutes, the call was reversed and the goal taken away. Jori Lehtera had crossed into the Blackhawks zone ahead of the puck, according to the referees and linemen, who reviewed the play. Shortly after the Blackhawks Andrew Shaw scored the go ahead goal. The Blues challenged Shaw's goal, calling for goalie interference. After another referee review, the goal was upheld. Artemi Panarin added an empty net goal to make it 3-1. Kevin Shattenkirk scored a goal with one second left to finish the scoring at 3-2.

The series is now tied 1-1 and moves to Chicago for games 3 and 4. Game Three is Sunday with a two o'clock face off at the United Center. Fox 2's Zac Choate has the Blues post game reaction after the frustrating second game of this series.
