Blues fans we need to calm down


I know we are very pissed right now about last night. We played poorly for two periods, had some bad luck with high sticking, and one of our best players got hurt in a play that should have resulted in a much stiffer penalty. But right now we all need to take a deep breath and calm the fuck down. We are whining and complaining enough that we are starting to sound like Red Wing and Blackhawk fans, and we are much better than that. If there is one thing this Blues teams has done all year, its deal with adversity. Perron started out not playing, we adjusted. McDonald got a concussion early this year, we picked up the slack. Steen missed time, we found ways to win. Halak went out in the first round, Elliot transformed from great goalie to brick wall. If Petro has to miss some time it will suck, he is a talented kid. But unlike fans of some other Central teams, we need to focus on making sure this team knows that we are behind them and we will put our focus and energy on supporting them in the next game instead of talking about a missed call and dirty hit. Hitch will not allow the players to focus on what happened to Petro last night, but instead what happened the rest of the game which was we played very poorly for long stretches. We got outworked last night, and I think that will end up hurting the Blues players more than losing Petro because this team's M.O. all year has been we never get outworked. If Petro is out we will survive, if he isn't he will lead us to victory. If you are going to the game Tuesday make sure you don't sit on your hands like last night's crowd. Players have said this crowd can give them wins because they are so energetic. Let's start with game 2 and give them some momentum for the trip west.

Take a deep breath, trust Hitch, and lets go BLUUUUUESSSS!!!!
