Everyone's busy tonight so allow me to be your captain on this train to Hockeytown. Tonight's game day movie poster is a little special. You see, @slapshotg0al... or Michelle to those not in cyberspace... noticed something. When she recommends an idea for me against the Blues, we flat out win. We're 2 for 2 so far this season.
I asked her today what she thought was appropriate. The results were.... as expected. Hit the jump for the full monty.
W is for Win. We could sure use another one tonight. One would think it would be easy given the Blues are using an AHL netminder. But no... don't count them out. Do not underestimate St. Louis. They can still be dangerous. Tonight we will work hard and all will remember... remember, remember the 13th of February..... or something like that. Let's crush these jerks!
Cleary and Abby do not belong on top lines- even with the injuries. Those guys keep whiffing on feeds or failing to bury it. Eaves and Tatar should be up (not counting Nyquist who should be up anyway). By my tally, Abby failed on the PP to effectively play his man (leading to a GA), Cleary got puck vision following Datsyuk deep and got caught leading to that GA, and Kindl's failure to position himself so all the offensive people were in front of him led to the 3rd GA. Granted I would like to see Jimmah make a save (esp. on a breakaway some day), but those three players are pretty much responsible for the 3 goals against at this point.
