GameThread for St. Louis Blues at Detroit Red Wings, Jan 20, 2014

The Blues are in Detroit for the only time this season. Will they walk out of the Joe with another win against the Eastern Conference?

Dave Sandford

Jimmy Howard's back, and he's been playing better. The team in front of him? Ehhhhh... no.

Jaroslav Halak is in tonight, and his stats against the Wings suck. He's gone 3-4-1 with a 3.77 GAAe and .880 SV%. I agree with Robb in his earlier post that Ken Hitchcock has been starting him against harder opponents and that explains his stats for this season, but maybe not starting him against the Wings tonight'd be ok. Since, you know, who knows what kind of Blues team we're going to see.

Then again, honestly, my concerns are more with the team in front than the goaltender in back. The Blues haven't had a three-game losing streak all season. Tonight isn't the night to start.

This is your gameday thread. We'll be here all night for all of your Fuck Detroit needs, and hopefully none of your "fuckin' A!" needs.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
