The Blues are venturing to the old Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for a matinee matchup against the New York Islanders.

Were the Islanders running a matinee ticket special today? Brunch and body checks? Okposo and eggs?

I'm not personally a huge fan of games that begin early, especially as early as this one is. It throws teams off of their routine. The Blues haven't had a game that started before 5:00 since November 29th against the Sharks, which started at 3:00 Central. I think we remember just how well that one went.

Regardless of if you're doing lunch or brunch, if you're watching at home or at your favorite watering hole, make sure that you're comfortable and buckled in for a rough and tumble, blue-collar matchup. The Islanders may not win every game, but they usually don't make it easy for the opposition. The Blues took them down 5-1 back in December; will this afternoon be another runaway win?

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like staying awake on the couch depends on it.

Let's do this. Let's get two more points. Let's Go Blues.
