ST. LOUIS (AP) - A mood of euphoric exhaustion carried over to the next day after the St. Louis Blues won the longest game in franchise history and got the upper hand against the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo says his legs are stiff and it felt as if the Blues played two games to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 in triple overtime in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series. But he had a smile on his face.

The game lasted 100 minutes and 36 seconds. The teams combined for 94 shots, loads of great saves by the goalies and one temper tantrum.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville apologized Friday for his obscene gesture, widely viewed on Twitter, reacting to a call that wasn't made in the first overtime. He was fined $25,000 for inappropriate conduct.
