    Honestly haven't seen anything from the Coyotes aside from Mike Smith's goal.

    Instinctively, I feel like the Blues are a better team, but I don't really have anything to back that up with w/o having watched Phoenix play.

    Meh, won't be that scary for you guys if we're taking dumb penalties and taking entire periods off.

    But if we're playing a full, clean 60 minutes like we did last game, however:

    Not to disrespect the Coyotes as they are a good team and Tippett is a really good coach, one of the best in the NHL, IMO.

    However, I feel like they play a very similar game to us, just with worse players (especially up front). Their offense is not scary.

    Should be a good, close game though. But on home ice I'm pretty confident in the Blues.

    Haven't had trouble at all scoring though. Should be a good game for sure. Haven't seen enough if Phoenix to really pass judgement but they are hot right now for sure

    I'm more concerned about getting the 2 points from this game than from the Colorado game. Phoenix is playing very very well right now, even if the national media aren't noticing.

    I haven't seen enough from the Yotes to know for sure how it will go. I do like that we will be at home as I know Phoenix is a dangerous team.

    Should be a good game.

    Colorado has the best record in the league.

    Yes, but I've watched both teams play multiple games. I think Phoenix is the more dangerous team.

    Too much talk about how they got up for The Pens, and that game had a playoff feel.

    A team that's not focused and mature about their effort, could easily have a let down.

    If the Blues put out the effort they brought against the Pens they'll win both games. Phoenix and Colorado are good but all effort being equal I think the Blues are subjectively the superior club. No doubt both opponents know playing in St. Louis so I expect two hard fought games (unless the Blues benefit from puck luck and put it away early). If the Blues take a period off this week, they'll have trouble.

    Absolutely agree that this game will be the tougher matchup. Wouldn't be the first to underestimate Colorado, though.
