    Blues have had some changes this year compared to previous ones. Lost some Flame killers and it will be interesting to see if they can handle our speed this year.

    So far, although it is an extremely small sample size, the Flames are averaging 4 goals per game while the Blues are averaging 2.5 goals per game.

    I thought rittich was supposed to get one of the starts between Nashville and St. Louis?

    Dube is pencilled into the lineup but it will be a game time decision whether he can play or not. If he can't play Jankowski will take his place.

    Tough to not start a goalie who just had a shutout 2 days ago.

    Rittich would've come in if Smith hadn't posted a shutout. You can't take a goalie out after a shutout

    Hopefully Smith plays well. I have a bad feeling about this one. We have a really hard October. Coming out of the month above .500 would be great.

    Let’s go boys. Replicate Tuesday’s effort.

    Dube's been taking a lot of rough hits lately. No doubt he could use a rest day.

    Do not worry. Jobu has come. Take fear from sticks.

    Weird, with Benny and Dube getting 2 each, Flames are going to light the Blue up :laugh:

    Dube feels good. I expect he will play tonight.

    Feeling like Neal will have a big game tonight. 2G + 1A for him on Benny's first goal of the season.

    St Louis will be hungry for their first win. We have to come flying and play a 60 minute effort like last game

    I think Chucky will come out flying to answer his brother's day yesterday. Nothing like a competition especially when playing where you grew up.

    Yup. Their offseason moves so far haven't produced on-ice success yet (I know ROR's got some points). Have a feeling they'll come out hot. Calgary better be ready to go from the drop. St Louis isn't a super skilled team, but they have good players; we should exploit some speed here.

    Just looking at the Flames scorers list. TJ Brodie: 3 GP / 3 Assists / +3 plus-minus.
    He's back! :thumbu:

    The Blues have been horrendous keeping the puck out of their net this year. Coach Yeo is not coach Hitchock so I think the Blues might be vulnerable.

    Wasn't Bennett the one who got his goal called back on a horrible stoppage of play call by the refs last game? The kid has had zero puck luck over the last year, Seems like a good game to reverse that trend.

    It was noted on CP that he has had 7 disallowed goals over his career, including 2 in one game back in 15-16. Poor dude needs one in the worst way
