I like to not pay any attention to Sunday's loss at Washington. Why? Because the Blues own the East. A 4-1 win ovver the Buffalo Sabres may not necessarily prove that, but the fact that they're 31-9-5 against the East since 2011 and have outscored that conference by 45 goals certainly goes some way toward that goal. They've also taken the last five from the Bruins in Boston, which is made all the more impressive considering that since 2011 the Bruins have won a Stanley Cup and have participated in another Cup final.
Jaroslav Halak had a bit of a brainfart in the opening ten seconds of Tuesday's win against the Sabres, but he was solid the rest of the game. He's getting a chance to roll again tonight, probably against Enemy of Milk Crates Everywhere, Tuukka Rask. Hockey pucks are also apparently scared to go anywhere near Rask. He has a 1.61 GAA and a .946 save percentage.
This is your GameDay Thread. Let's hope that Roman Polak keeps that scoring touch. Let's see if Umlaut can slap another one home. Let's have more fun features where Sobotka calls Polak "soft."
Let's take another two points from the East. Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
