He returned to action on Sunday against Dallas for the first time since Game 2 of the Chicago series. "He played really good," said Hitchcock. "Like I said on the TV broadcast, if the coach was a little smarter, he would have had him out there more." The coach liked Reaves' control on the boards and he accounted for five hits on his eight shifts.

The game misconduct penalty that Ryan Reaves received against Chicago on Wednesday has been rescinded by the NHL.

"You could see I disagreed with the call," said Reaves. "I think the league did too. There was no discipline against me and they took away the 10-minute on my record. It was a clean hit. Just a Blues-Blackhawks game." The game misconduct infraction would have been his second of the season and a third results in an automatic one-game suspension.
