03/04 Road Music: @ Dallas Stars

Reason #237 that Dallas is in decline: on March 1st, they gave Steve Ott a 4-year extension, worth about 3 million a year. That, and signing ATL's oft-injured Lehtonen ...those were the team's priorities???

The Blues playoff drive rolls on tonight in Big D. This is only the second time this year that the Blues have won 4 in a row. A win tonight puts us that much closer to a playoff slot - we are in 12th, just 3 points out from 8th, and Dallas is one of the teams we have to leapfrog to get there (Gonna make it, baby, If we try). Dallas is hanging in there at 10th, but it doesn't look good for them.  Turco just doesn't have it in him to cover for their D anymore (The old get old, And the young get stronger). They are 6-3-1 in the last 10 games, but are coming off a 5-1 shellacking at the hands of LA. Inexplicably, Dallas did not address these issues at the trade deadline (Your ballroom days are over, baby, Night is drawing near).

I don't know the odds that we'll make the playoff cut this year, but this is an opportunity to help increase our chances (May take a week, And it may take longer). This is a team that is certainly beatable, and a goaltender that is usually good for at least one puckhandling gaffe per game. If we play our game for the full 60 minutes, this should be ours (Gonna win, yeah We're takin' over). Also, I hope to see what the new kid's got.

This is also your pregame pre-party. Meet here and catch up on deadline day happenings (trust me, you didn't miss much), swap twitter feeds (I'm now on Twitter, @CrossCheckRaise), and get ready for some Ott-pounding. With Cam suspended, I hope we can dress D.J. King tonight (No one here gets out alive). I can't figure out which one of these best describes that asshole:

Puck drops at 7:30 tonight, with the GDT dropping shortly beforehand. Be sure to check your Center Ice free preview for game coverage, should you be outside of the FoxSports Midwest viewing area.

 

Until then,
