Gino Cavallini scored what proved to be the game-winning goal for the St. Louis Blues alumni to post a 10-9 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks at Carver Arena Wednesday evening before a estimated crowd of 4,500 fans. The game was fundraiser to benefit the victims of the EF-4 tornado that devastated Washington and other central Illinois communities November 17, 2013. Event organizer Denis Cyr, the former Peoria Rivermen, St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks winger, reunited on a line with Denis Savard for the first time since their NHL days together 30 years ago. Terry Yake had a hat trick for the Blues and Eric Daze contributed a hat trick for the Blackhawks. If you would like to contribute to the victims visit there web-site Skate Strong Hockey.  Early reports are that the night raised $ 50,000. I want to personally thank Denis Cyr for trusting me to photograph this awesome night. I hope everyone is happy with my images.
