Well hell, just a few more steps in this funeral dirge. The crowd has thinned here, the gem from their doughnuts gone. Only the insane and delusional are left to post on game day threads.Per Strickland tweets Jackman may be out with an UBI. No plan to callup a D-man in which one could assume Colaiacovo will return to the lineup.
Kariya is still a question.
The last meeting between these two teams the Blues knocked the shit out of the Stars 6-1 in Dallas. The Blues lost to the Stars in St. Louis back in October 4-1. The Blue also beat the Stars in a shootout the day before Thanksgiving, 4-3, giving them a 1-1-1 record against them this year. Let's take the series from them and knock them dizzy.
A quick recon of the enemy's camp shows that Marc Crawford is playing head games with his goalies, saying that Kari Lethonen just might start in goal on Saturday versus the Blues. From Brad Gardner at Defending Big D.
He led reporters to believe that might happen earlier in the week, and then Matt Climie was called up from the Texas Stars, leading to speculation that he might get the start in net in St. Louis.
Now Crawford indicates he might want to see how Lethonen does in back-to-back situations (a test for Lethonen's conditioning as well as his conditioners, perhaps?). We'll see.
Black Men Of Labor dirge to set the somber mood.
LET'S GO BLUES!!! We ain't dead yet!!
P.S. And remember, it's heel down first in a dirge when stepping.
