Blues At Stars Morning Open Thread: Didn't We Just Do This?

The NHL's schedule makers have given another back to back to the Blues where the second game starts close to the end of the first.

The last time that the Blues had a back-to-back game that started so soon on a Sunday, they lost 4-1 to the Washington Capitals after a see-saw 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Tonight's game begins at 5:00 Central, so if you're feeling like this is a case of deja vú, I don't blame you.

Last night's 6-5 shootout win over the Chicago Blackhawks came with a decent portion of the team sick or injured, and tonight's starter Brian Elliott playing two out of three periods. Tonight, the Blues might not have a lot of get up and go, because last night's game was the hardest that I've seen them fight for a win in a long time.

Of course, the defense might have some pep, because they took most of last night off.

Regardless, a 3-0 record against the Blackhawks for the season so far looks good. A 11-0-1 record against the Central Division's also pretty nice. The Blues've defeated the Stars once so far this season, a 6-1 stomping at Scottrade back on November 23rd.

This is your morning open thread. Go on and discuss the US's game against Germany, while you're waiting on a game preview and your GDT. Don't forget that it's Prospect Sunday, to boot! Head over to Defending Big D for their take on tonight's matchup.
