The Blues could have been a bit better on the penalty kill, as the Wild's top line confounded the Blues' defense. Luckily for the Blues, their own defense's offense threw Minnesota for a loop.

Welcome to the Blues' first televised tilt of the year against the new and improved (?) Minnesota Wild.

If you're at the game tonight, keep your eyes peeled for the special auction set to benefit Cardinals Care and the Blues 14 Fund. The Blues will be wearing these to honor Stan Musial during pre-game warmups:
Afterwards, the will autograph the jerseys for auction. Musial was obviously a huge part of St. Louis' community, and not just baseball. Both Bernie Federko and Bob Plager were present at Musial's funeral yesterday, and the whole of the city has been acting like they've been in mourning for royalty -- which, with Musial, they might as well be. Baseball royalty, St. Louis royalty, Stan the Man was a royally good person who will be missed, and good one on the Blues to recognize that.
Not that we'd expect anything else from a team in a city whose sports franchises support each other as well as they do here in St Louis.

The Blues squeaked out of Dallas with a win last night, and the Wild need to get back above .500. Tonight''s game might not be the typical Minnesota snoozefest that we usually expect.

It's always nice to know what the opposition is thinking. Right now, I'm sure the Wild are thinking "Damn, I wish we would have beaten Detroit the other night." How about the opposition blog? What're they thinking? Well, here's their gameday preview:
The Wild in 44 all time games against St. Louis are 22-13-5-4 (yes, 5 ties, remember those?). To be fair, this is now a much different Blues squad than we have seen in the past and even with St. Louis playing yesterday and traveling the 15 minute flight from Dallas to St. Louis this will be no easy task ahead for your struggling Wild. The Blues are 4-1 in this short season while your Wild squad is 2-2, if the playoffs started today, that would be insane, its not even February yet.
So, yeah, the Blues don't have the greatest record against the Wild(s), but keep in mind, most of these games have been lost -- either in regulation or overtime -- on razor-thin margins. Hopefully Brian Elliott can keep the low goals against going, and hopefully the Blues' offense can light the lamp for three goals or more for the fifth time this season. Minny might not know what to do with that.
