This is what we need to see more of tonight. - Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

The home team has only lost once so far in these Western Conference quarterfinals. The Blues can keep that trend going tonight.

Is David Backes playing tonight? Who the hell knows. Does Ken Hitchcock even know? Naah.

He's just screwing with Coach Q. You know, mind games and all that.

The Blues need to jumpstart some offense tonight, and while Backes would be supremely useful in that category, Hitch is going with some new lines. Per Jeremy Rutherford:

Forwards

Alexander Steen-Vladimir Sobotka-Vladimir Tarasenko

Jaden Schwartz-Derek Roy/David Backes-T.J. Oshie

Steve Ott-Patrik Berglund-Adam Cracknell

Chris Porter-Maxim Lapierre-Ryan Reaves

Defensemen

Jay Bouwmeester-Alex Pietrangelo

Barret Jackman-Kevin Shattenkirk

Jordan Leopold-Roman Polak

Goalie

Ryan Miller

While you're waiting for puck drop, go on and ponder those lines. Also note that slash after Derek Roy's name and then some other dude's name after it.

Play a full sixty minutes. Bug the hell out of Kane and Toews. Win this game.

Comment like you'd like a chance to see the Blues some more at home.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
