Remember after the Blues traded away Jaroslav Halak way back in April how he wouldn't play against his old team? How he was still pretty hurt that they felt he was the weak link, so he needed to go?
He's playing this afternoon, and he's not a weak link.
In fact, he now holds the New York Islanders' record for consecutive wins by a goaltender at eleven. New York has won eight of their last nine and, in case you live under a rock, are a really really damn good team this season. I've been keeping an eye on them for a while because watching them play has always been kind of fun; I always assumed all that it would take to get them over that hump was a goaltender. I never expected it to be one of the Blues' old guys.
This is your morning open thread. Complain about how the Blues are slipping in the standings thanks to just two losses in a row (goddarnit, parity), wait a bit for CCR's Road Music, and read our friend and fellow Blues fan (except today) Dom's bragging on Lighthouse Hockey.
Remember - lunchtime puckdrop, so get up, get showered, and get your butt to the bar.
