Here's an excerpt from the cover story for St. Louis Game Time. If you're going tonight and planning on buying a copy, don't ruin the surprise and just go back to surfing for pictures of Alexander Ovechkin's girlfriend. And if you are going tonight and NOT planning on buying a copy, go back to surfing for pictures of Gary Bettman, you cheap bastard.

Coyotes Come Howling
For the hell of it, let’s check out the standings and do a little math. As of today, the Blues and Blackhawks are tied with 66 points apiece, tied for 12th in the Western Conference.
An educated guess says 94 points will qualify for the playoffs in the Western Conference. It could be higher, but it’s doubtful a team with less than 94 will make the postseason. For the Blues to finish the season with 94 points, they have to go 14-5-0 over their last 19 games. A quick look at the Blues’ schedule so far this season shows that the team hasn’t played at that kind of pace all season. The closest they even came was a stretch form mid-October into November where the Blues were 12-7-0 which would still fall short of that 94-point goal.
