My Mom gets to go to her first Blues game of the season tonight, I hope it's as good as the last 3 games.

BLUES NEWS:

  • Kevin Shattenkirk would like to hear his name called for the All-Star game, but if not, he's still pulling for Vladimir Tarasenko. Plus the Blues have the NHL's top power play and zero changes to tonight's lineup from Thursday's game. [Lou Korac / In the Slot]
  • Kirk Muller and the Blues' surging power play. [StL Today]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY:
