GameThread for Colorado Avalanche at St. Louis Blues, Jan 19, 2015

Tonight is the last Blues' game before the All-Star Break. Let's go into the time off with some more momentum.

Whatever you do, don't ask David Backes his opinions on the All Star Break. Chris Pinkert of the Blues Overtime Blog learned that the hard way:

"We’ve got one task to finish before we get there, and that’s get two points tonight against Colorado," Blues captain David Backes said. "We’ve seen they can lay it on us if we don’t bring our A-game. Before the last break we had for Christmas, we played them and it wasn’t very pretty. So maybe you (media) guys can stop talking about a break and start talking about the game tonight and we’ll stay focused on it and get two points.

"You can call me (tomorrow) and we’ll talk about the break all you want."

Well, ok then. To be honest, the thought of no games over the next nine games doesn't do much for me, especially with the Blues playing as well as they have been. Oh well - let's get two points and focus on the last game of the homestand against the Predators.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you can't wait for the break to be over. Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
