St. Louis Blues Release 2010-11 Schedule UPDATED

New, comments


The NHL released the entire Blues schedule for next season. This used to happen on the sports dead day after the MLB All-Star game, but it's been moved up to coincide with the Hockey Hall of Fame announcement this afternoon as well as the NHL draft that begins on Friday.

As we found out yesterday, the Blues open at home on Saturday, Oct. 9 against the defending Eastern Conference champion Flyers. (For the full schedule, go to the jump)

The longest road trip of the year is only four games long. And of course it's in March when the Drinkscotch Center is usually hosting college basketball, college wrestling, college hockey Disney on Ice or whatever else they do to pay the bills for the joint. The longest homestand is wrapped around the Christmas and New Year's holidays with five games. That stretch also has the first home game of the year against the Red Wings on Dec. 23. Happy Holidays!

First home game against the Cup champion Blackhawks is much earlier this year, Oct. 22 (a Friday night) compared with Jan. 2 this past season. With six games against Chicago, two of them are down after the first month of the season.

As far as league stars from the other conference, Sidney Crosby comes back to St. Louis on Oct. 23 (a Saturday night). His foil, Alex Ovechkin comes back to St. Louis for back-to-back seasons on Dec. 1 (a Wednesday). The Blues also visit the Capitals March 3. Martin Brodeur will be in St. Louis Nov. 20. Someone tell him about slingers beforehand. Their last game against the Eastern Conference is March 5.

Without the Olympic break this year, the schedule is a little more forgiving with more days to play the 82 games than last season, but the Blues play on back-to-back nights nearly the same number of times  on consecutive nights this year as last year. In 2010-11, they play back-to-back 14 times with eight of them before January. Last year they played on consecutive nights 16 times (this is updated because I apparently can't count).
