GameThread for St. Louis Blues at New York Islanders, Dec 6, 2014

New, comments

Both the Blues and Islanders are beaten and bruised. One team, though, has found a way to continue their hot streak.

The Islanders are missing three of their top six defensemen to the dreaded "injury bug." The Blues, however, are just missing Jay Bouwmeester, but the rest of the team is playing defense like they're injured.

I suppose this explains the late line-up decision today:

Good. That makes me feel better about the Blues' chances.

The Islanders average nearly three goals a game. They allow two and a half on average. If the Blues can pressure Halak like they pressured Pekka Rinne on Thursday while at the same time actually capitalizing on more scoring chances, the Blues should be fine. Sure, they have to play defense too, but eh. Semantics.
