    Blues won 7-0 last time.

    BLUES (7-1-2) at PANTHERS (3-7-2)

    TV: FS-MW, FS-F


    Blue Notes: The Blues have points in five consecutive games (3-0-2). Vladimir Sobotka leads the League winning 70.6 percent of his faceoffs. The Blues have won three consecutive games vs. Florida and have outscored the Panthers 13-2 in that stretch. Sobotka has a three-game assist streak vs. Florida (four assists). Chris Stewart has seven points (one goal, six assists) in his last three games against the Panthers. Jay Bouwmeester ranks third in games played (471) and second in points (203) among defenseman in Panthers history.

    Big story: The Panthers rank in the bottom five in goals against, and toward the bottom of the NHL in penalty killing. The Blues, meanwhile, are in the top three in goals scored and power-play percentage.

    Who's hot: Steen has 11 goals, including a current five-game goal streak (seven goals), and Pietrangelo has two goals and two assists in two games for the Blues. … Tomas Fleischmann has points in three of five games for the Panthers.

    Injury report: Goalie Tim Thomas (lower body), wing Steven Pinizzotto (hip) and defenseman Ed Jovanovski (hip) are on injured reserve for the Panthers while Fleischmann (flu-like symptoms) is probable. … The Blues are without Magnus Paajarvi (upper-body) and Brenden Morrow (upper body) did not travel with the team.

    I don't see this one being a blowout. I honestly see it being a chippy low scoring game. You gotta think the Panthers are pissed at how our last meeting went which wasn't that long ago. Also that game ended with a lot of bad blood brewing so this could get nasty tonight.

    OT: Posting full articles is against site rules. It is better to post a piece of the article and then the link to the full article. Just don't want ya getting in trouble.

    Elliott starts, Cole in for Leopold....not liking it but we'll see.
    plus Morrow out and Lappy back.
    a W in the first of back-to-back games is always hugh so let's go Blues!!

    Much rather have this lineup against Florida than the Lightning (who are near the top of the east)

    I don't mind the Cole for Leopold swap. Cole needs to play or else he'll just rot in the press box, and Florida isn't exactly a strong team. Leopold has been quite good this season, but a break every now and then shouldn't hurt him at all.

    It's not our "A Team", but it's a good enough line up to win if they play well. I like Cole getting in there. Jackman and Leo are both going to need some games off throughout the season, and Cole is about as good of a 7th Dman as there is in the league. I also like Ells getting in this game because Tampa is a stronger team than Florida. We're going to need Jaro tomorrow night.

    I don't understand, I guess, why after the last two seasons Elliott outplaying Halak head to head it is assumed he's some kind of weak link. That's just weird. Then again, the way our fan base reacts to Elliott is the weirdest player reaction I have ever seen with a Blues player.

    Elliott hasn't looked very inspiring in our limited chances to see him so far this season. Thats what I base my opinion on. Its a new season and especially goalies have to prove it every year.

    Elliott can be steady, but he won't steal any games. He's a decent backup. I would hate to see him on a poor defensive team that faces high quality shots on a regular basis.

    don't get me wrong please! I'm the opposite of an Ells hater, defended him all the way. but I admit I am a little nervous when he starts, mostly because of his rust.

    edit: btw its the same with Cole!

    Yes, goalies do need to get into a bit of a rhythm. I agree with that. Should be fun to see Halak play Tuesday back in Montreal.

    Go Blues! Hopefully they don't let their last game they played against Florida go to their head.




    Are you usually happy with results other than wins?

    I'm expecting another trouncing.

    6-2 Blues.

    Steen (x2), Tarasenko, Backes, Stewart (x2...the start of a hot streak).

    All that young high draft pick talent Florida has makes you wonder that they enjoy the fun an sun of South Florida just a bit too much along with the veterans of the Panthers.

    Even with Elliott between the pipes and some other tweaks for tonight's lineup due to injuries and a night off for Leopold, this is a very winnable game tonight.

    Get R done Blues! :bb:

    I didn't make a prediction like I normally do. I'll say 4-3 Blues in an ugly one.
