The phrase "national broadcast" strikes fear into the heart of many Blues fans. Normally, the team turns in a less than dominant performance during these games, and playing the reigning Eastern Conference champion tonight won't be an easy one. The Blues have beaten the Lightning three games in a row going back to 2013-2014. None of these games, however, were easy wins or games where the Bolts rolled over. The Blues have had to work for their points, and tonight's undermanned team may have to work harder. Without Paul Stastny, Jaden Schwartz, or Kevin Shattenkirk. the Blues will have to step it up, and this includes recently recovered Robby Fabbri.
Tonight's game, if you won't be at home or if you have a cable/satellite password, will be livestreaming on NBC Sports Live Extra. Puck drop is at 7. Won't you join us?
