GameThread for Los Angeles Kings at St. Louis Blues, Jan 2, 2014

The Blues ended the new year with a win against a slumping team - can they start one with the same?

Tonight, a streak will be broken. Either the Blues' modest three-game winning streak will come to an end, or the Los Angeles Kings' four-game losing streak will conclude. I, along with everyone else reading this who is not a Kings fan, would prefer the former.

The Blues are getting healthier little by little, bit by bit, but will still be missing David Backes and Jaroslav Halak. Backes has been skating and participating in practice but not in full on contact, and Halak apparently has the plague or something*. Jake Allen has been recalled from Chicago. In the Kings' net the Blues will be seeing feel good story of the season Martin Jones. It's the first time for both - hopefully it won't be awkward on the Blues' side.

This is your gameday thread. Remember that just because Dustin Brown is on Team USA doesn't mean that we have to start liking him.

Let's do this.

Let's go Blues
