Is David Backes playing tonight? Who the hell knows. Does Ken Hitchcock even know? Naah.
He's just screwing with Coach Q. You know, mind games and all that.
The Blues need to jumpstart some offense tonight, and while Backes would be supremely useful in that category, Hitch is going with some new lines. Per Jeremy Rutherford:
While you're waiting for puck drop, go on and ponder those lines. Also note that slash after Derek Roy's name and then some other dude's name after it.
Play a full sixty minutes. Bug the hell out of Kane and Toews. Win this game.
Comment like you'd like a chance to see the Blues some more at home.
Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
