- I'M DYING
- Hey guys guess what, the Blues are really good. Like, really good. I mean obviously Nashville's over there in the West just having a good old time, but the Blues are just six points behind them. Their second line of Schwartz - Tarasenko - Lehtera has been an eye-opener this year; they've combine for a ton of points and can be relied on to pick up the slack when the first line can't get things going. The fourth line is a pile of hot garbage (hey, that sounds familiar!) but - I mean, when you're deep enough to have Paul Stastny on your third line, you're doing pretty okay.
- On defense, the Blues are short BU boy Kevin Shattenkirk, who's due to have abdominal surgery in the next few days. He played his first game for the Blues almost exactly four years ago, the product of what's turned out to be a pretty even-keeled trade for the Avalanche and Blues.
- Last time these two teams met at Scottrade, St. Louis had just gotten a whole mess of snow and the Bruins won. Granted, the Bruins were a lot better a year ago, but - hey, there's a chance!
- Carter Camper made his debut against the Blues and tonight it's looking like a repeat of that, with Brian Ferlin getting the call. Also, maybe if we say Tuukka Rask is absolutely 100% no-chance-of-being-wrong going to start, something else will happen? Yes.
One time I watched this game with a bunch of Blues fans because it was the offseason and we were all bored and let me tell you, it's way funnier in retrospect. /drinks wine
