Blues At Stars Game Day: Yippie-Kai-Yay, Mother Trucker

New, comments

The Blues are off to visit the Dallas Stars for the first time this season. The Stars have started strong, but are down Jaromir Jagr. Will the Blues be able to solve Kari Lehtonen? Chat about that here.

So, the Dallas Stars seem to be off to a pretty good start this season. Sure, they blew a lead Thursday night and lost to the Blackhawks in overtime (thanks, guys), but they have some jump in their step that's about to get jumpier. The Stars just re-signed star forward Jamie Benn to a five-year contract after some haggling.

Can they haggle their way past the Blues? Last year St. Louis took three of four games, and that was without scoring sensation Vladimir Tarasenko, a healthy Andy McDonald, and a healthy Alex Steen. Can Käarpa, AKA Kari Lehtonen, AKA SplodeyGroin, keep up with the Blues newfound scoring oomph? He's been doing pretty well recently, not losing a game in regulation yet and keeping a very impressive and very un-Thrasher like .942 save percentage.

The Blues line-up should be the same for today's game. Check back later for Defending Big D's preview, Road Music, our preview, and of course the game day thread and recap.
