The St. Louis Blues are really taking the old adage "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer" to heart.
The team tweeted out some pics of players returning to the ice for practice, and if you take a closer look you can see a Blackhawks logo in net.

Is this the Blues taking a page out of Michael Jordan's book and doing whatever they can to give themselves an edge in practice?
Or are the Blue paying respects to a team loaded with superstars that can challenge them for the Eastern Conference title if they go on a hot streak?
Hard to say. But it's safe to say most hockey fans would love to see Corey Crawford in net, and Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane challenging the likes of Vladimir Tarasenko, Alex Pietrangelo and Jordan Binnington when hockey finally does return.
