The Sports Hub: Blues and Hitchcock Win

Ron Jacober and Chris Kerber host The Sports Hub, following a very emotional Blues’ game. Before the game, former Blues’ players, Pavol Demitra and Igor Korolev, were remembered by families, teammates, and fans. Also, tonight’s Blues’ game featured Ken Hitchcock’s first night behind the bench as the Blues’ new headcoach. The Blues were looking for a big game from goaltender, Jaroslav Halak, and he delivered with a 3-0 shutout against the Chicago Blackhawks.
