GameThread for Los Angeles Kings at St. Louis Blues, Jan 16, 2014

The Kings' grip on their kingdom is starting to slip, while the Blues' high octane scoring continues to give teams problems.

Jonathan Quick may be a future teammate of David Backes, T.J. Oshie, and Kevin Shattenkirk, but they're not teammates yet. The Kings have been struggling their last 10 games in a tight division, while the Blues have been rolling right along.

Speaking of rolling, protect Jaroslav Halak. Dustin Brown rolled over Canadian starter Roberto Luongo and broke him; I'd really much rather him not run over the Slovak starter to do the same. Team over country in the regular season, guys.

Hell, just wear extra knee-pads and wrap your heads in bubble wrap. That may be the only protection against Brown. More important than protection is defeating him, and the Blues've already done that once this near year. They can do it again.

This is your game day thread. Comment like Scottrade's sold out and you couldn't get tickets.

Let's do this. Let's go Blues.
