The St. Louis Blues' road trip to Chicago apparently is not going quite as planned. The team attempted to fly to Chicago Tuesday night following a 3-0 loss at home to Los Angeles, but the Blues were instead forced to land in Milwaukee around 1:15 a.m. on Wednesday due to heavy fog. The team then had to board a bus for a 90-minute ride to Chicago and did not reach their hotel until 4 a.m., according to the Blues' website. 

The team's Twitter account poked fun at the trip with a fantastic Home Alone reference.

There will be no rest for the weary, however. The Blues have to be on the ice in Chicago at 7 p.m. CT for the second half of a back-to-back. It looks like St. Louis could be a very tired team Wednesday night. 

At least their morning skate was canceled.
