They call it the Sommet Center (for the moment, anyway), but it will always be Gaylord to me.For only the second time since Sweden, the Blues play a division opponent — these are the points that are especially important. If it has to happen, we can more afford a cold streak when we are mostly playing the Eastern Conference teams. The win in Dallas would be a particularly timely turning point, now that the next three games are within the Central Division.
Nashville has been an easy team to overlook, but it would be a serious mistake to underestimate them now. They are currently riding a 7-game winning streak, and are also debuting their new third jerseys. I have to admit, they are sharp-looking. Their team will come out with a lot of confidence, and the Blues need to match that with a solid work ethic.
Their goaltending merry-go-round seems to be featuring Pekka Rinne right now. Carousel cast-off Chris Mason demonstrated last season that he still knows how to carry a game in Nashville. I'm sure he will have no problem getting pscyhed-up for the game. The rest of the team can draw from that, as well. No excuses for coming out flat.
Today's song is a rocking tune that I could only feature for a Preds game... for reasons that should be obvious. Too bad that their logo is a cat, because a mascot named PredoBear would be awesome.
This is also your pre-party. Warm up your leftovers, check out the alternate channel for your area, and discuss exactly how much hotness is added to a chick when she's got a electric guitar (and knows how to use it). Yeah, Joan Jett was one of my earliest Rock 'n Roll crushes.
Lets Go Blues!
