BLUES NEWS:

  • Defenseman Robert Bortuzzo will play tonight against the Wild(s), as will goaltender Jake Allen . . . meanwhile, forward Troy Brouwer was held out of practice yesterday but says he'll be ready to go tonight. [In the Slot / Lou Korac]
  • A subtle reminder that tonight's game is for the Conference III Belt. [III Communication]
  • The Blues are talking about renovations being needed to the Scottrade Center. Not shocking . . . the building IS two decades old, after all. [Frozen Notes]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY--THE MINNESOTA WILD(S):

  • Hockey Wilderness has a view of the other side of tonight's matchup. [Hockey Wilderness]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Five games last night. LOL Kings. [NHL.com 10/09/2015]
  • 14 games tonight. Whoa! Only two teams that DON'T play? The Jets and . . . yep, the Kings. [NHL.com 10/10/2015]
  • Former NHL defenseman Mike Commodore, who at a couple points in his career played for Mike Babcock, basically thinks Mike Babcock should take a long hike off a short pier. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • The Rangers scored two goals in a span of 17 seconds to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Though, take a look at the second of those two goals. Kevin Hayes couldn't do that again if he tried. [SB Nation / Lookit]
  • Ryan Lambert tries to make sense of a confusing goaltending controversy in Calgary. Flames, I'll make it easy for you . . . Jonas Hiller is your starter. Anyway, here's Trending Topics. [Puck Daddy]
  • Former NHL player Aaron Ward blocked me on Twitter a while back. I don't know why. Anyway, in an alleged incident Friday, blocked access to his wife's cell phone when domestic shit went down at his home. Again, I don't know why. But I DO know it's a no-no. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The grievance between the NHLPA and the Kings in regard to Mike Richards' contract termination has concluded. Basically, the Kings are gonna have to pay some of it. [USA Today]
  • Meanwhile, in the LA 'burbs, the Ducks signed defenseman Simon Despres--who they absolutely fucking STOLE from the Penguins at last year's deadline--to a five-year contract extension. [Orange County Register]
  • As he does every year, Chris Pronger completed a physical examination to continue justifying his spot on long-term injured reserve. Except this time, it was done as a member of the Coyotes roster. As usual, he failed it. [Sportsnet]
  • Hurricanes defenseman James Wisniewski tore an ACL. His season is essentially over less than a minute after it started. [TSN]

OTHER SHIT:

  • They put green screens behind home plate to show ads to TV viewers. Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes wears a bright green compression sleeve. Which means HIS arm is catching TV ads too. [SB Nation / Lookit]
  • Several Grantland writers are allegedly leaving ESPN to work for Bill Simmons at HBO. [Deadspin]
  • The earth spins at approximately 1,000MPH. But why don't we feel it? [Mental Floss]
  • Now you can make your very own geometric mask in time for halloween. [Nerdist]
  • Why is the sky blue . . . on Pluto? [NPR / The Two-Way]
  • It's not often that a car chase ends with the car in the Goddamn ocean. Alas. [Y! / Reuters]

I keep finding gems like this in Scott Bradlee's Youtube channel . . . Super Mario World piano and tap dance:

Well done, gents!

Hoosier Blue has your links tomorrow. Sure to be a hit! Another Blues win would be nice too.
