Avalanche At Blues Morning Open Thread: Maybe Clinch Tonight, Instead?

Dilip Vishwanat

The Blues can, again, clinch a playoff spot tonight with a win over the Colorado Avalanche. Thank God they can beat them at Scottrade.

So, Sunday didn't go as planned with the winning and the clinching and the home ice advantage, did it? Admittedly, the Blues laid a massive egg in center ice; Brian Elliott got absolutely no help and Jake Allen probably got even less; the one game the Blues manage to score more than two goals in, the defense craps the bed and allows five.

Let's try this whole "clinching a playoff spot" thing again tonight, shall we? They could have clinched last night had the Coyotes won over the Detroit Red Wings, but neither team did the Blues any favors. Why should they? If the Blues clinch, they need to take responsibility and do it themselves.

No stupid aggravation penalties. No starting fights after clean hits that lead to power play goals. No getting frustrated -- if you do, then score. Score to your hearts' content, but don't be a dumbass, guys.

This is your morning open thread. Check back later for some Lighting the Lamp, a game preview, and your GDT -- and hopefully a celebratory "hey, they clinched!" recap.
