St. Louis Blues at New York Rangers, Jan 23, 2014

The Blues are in a New York state of mind as they take on the Blueshirts tonight, and the Islanders on Saturday.

It's been so long since the Blues were in NY, that Ty Conklin was in net and Frolov was in the NHL.

The Blues have won ten of their last 14 matches against the Rangers, but they don't see them often enough for that to mean much. Back on October 12th, they defeated New York 5-3, which is the score that the Rangers lost by to the Islanders on Tuesday. The Rangers blew a lead twice, but the tenacity of the Islanders overwhelmed them.

The Islanders, when they focus, have a very high level of tenacity. The Blues do as well, and they should be extra motivated after their 7-1 curbstomping at the hands of the New Jersey Devils. Jaroslav Halak is in net tonight, and I'm not a betting person, but I bet he'd like a bounceback game after allowing 4 goals on just 14 shots. I know my fantasy team'd appreciate that too.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment here about how awful Henrik Lundqvist's Head and Shoulders commercial is. Comment about how well the Blues are playing tonight, because that's the kind of game it's going to be... right?
