    Looks like we're going with the same line-up we did against DET.

    If you told me before the season that we would play the first six games without Karl Alzner getting 1 second of ice time, I'd have had a good laugh.

    Just noticed that the game is at 7pm tomorrow night and not your usual 7:30.

    Blues typically have a good team D but they have allowed 20 goals in 5 games so far. Regardless, I can see the Habs having a bit of a hard time scoring on their D and they appear to have 4 good lines and good center depth as well.

    Steen / ROR / Tarasenko
    Blais / Schenn / Perron
    Maroon / Bozak / Kyrou
    Barbashev / Thomas / Schmaltz

    Edmundson / Pietrangelo
    Bouwmeester / Parayko
    Bortuzzo / Dunn

    Allen

    A very similar team vs the Kings. Another good test

    We do not match up well against heavy teams. I expect a thumping, with Price letting in 4 over his shoulder.

    I used to love the Blues when they had guys like Federko/Babych, Hull'n'Oates, Gilmour, Shanahan. Hate them since they became about huge overrated pylons like Bouwmeester and Petrangelo and no flashy forwards (except the one now) plus a lousy goalie. Remember when they had Roman Polak a few years ago and he cost them their playoff run just by being lame?

    A good test for sure. St. Louis is similar to LA so a good win is needed to help erase that LA game

    I hope they could atleast score a goal unlike the LA game, that was embarrassing or a home game ceremony!

    They will need to make adjustments against bigger teams. But they may just need m0re skill t0 get on the inside, as their usual-overwhelm the opposition with effort - doesn't work with physical teams that can keep you on the outside.

    I find Blues to be the most overrated team in the league on HF

    This off season everyone was convinved they made huge strides and would contend.

    I still see them as a bubble team at most.

    4-1 Habs. We're winning our division this year

    This one scares me a little , do we know if Price will be back in net ? Anyway , if the they continue to play the way they did so far , it's gonna be another good game to watch .

    I'm glad it happened this way..because if they sat him out for 1 game and broke his ironman streak then put him back in as a "wake up call" well that's bad optics..but to hold him out for 6 games the message has been sent...

    Although we can't exclude the fact that Habs can make any goalie look great, Jake Allen is having a terrible start to the season. And the Blues are currently 25th in goals against.

    1 or 2 games is a message... 6 games is a statement. I'm not saying I don't agree with it because I hated the signing from the start and he probably deserves to be the odd man out, but it's just really interesting to see the team really buckle down and bite the bullet on their decision.

    Jake Allen is not a #1 starter, too much inconsistency. He does look good, makes good saves then allows an easy one to ultimately becoming awful for a few games. Then, the same old pattern starts again.

    Who is he going to fight? Pietrangelo's 10 year old nephew watching from the stands.
