Couple of observations from tonight's game.

Ok, one big one that was really painfully obvious all night long - the Blues are frustrated, and they're playing like it. I don't know how obvious it is on TV, but tonight, wow. They were letting anything get under their skins - the slightest shove, a look, everything. And instead of retaliating with their play necessarily, they just retaliated by doing stupid things. Winchester thankfully didn't try to fight Byfuglien, but Barret Jackman's "kneeing" (should have been tripping) call on Evander Kane wasn't necessary. It wasn't done on accident, in the middle of the play. Kane skated by Jackman, Jax grabbed both of Kane's knees with his stick, and pulled as hard as he could to get Kane to the ice. Why? Kane was chirping at Jackman and pushing and prodding and trying to annoy him so Jackman'd do something doofy - and he did.

Also, a pass needs to somehow make it from point A to point B without someone else getting the puck that isn't wearing our jersey.

Anywho, I really did like how the Blues remembered exactly how to score on Chris Mason - high glove side. All three goals just flew into the net in the exact same way. If the opposition needed the perfect tape on how to beat Chris Mason, they got it tonight. He's been struggling all season long so far anyway trying to adjust to the Thrashers and the Eastern Conference, but tonight was just a matter of someone knowing how to beat him, plain and simple.

Not a whole bunch of Blues fans there tonight - there were a few, but not a ton. Always surprises me, considering how many Cardinals fans invade Braves games, but different sports, I guess. The ones that were there were pretty loud, but Philips was loud tonight in general. Considering it was a Tuesday, there were a ton of people there (like 14,600 or so, I think). I guess people're off, or something, but the atmosphere was fun. I hope it's like that on Sunday, too. Weird... it's more enjoyable with people IN the arena.

Oh, and if anyone wants to look at shitty pictures of tonight's game (my friend's camera is not suited to hockey photography), here you go
