Blues News:

  • Tomorrow's Blues has your week in review for the top Blues prospects.  Captain Umlaut gets a mention. [STLGT]
  • Tomorrow's Blues also has your Wolves recaps.  Ivan Barbashev is doing good things. [STLGT]
  • Jake Allen was named one of the NHL's 3 stars of the week. [NBC Sports]
  • Bleacher Report has their new power rankings out.  The good guys fall in at number 3.  Not bad for an injury-plagued group.  See who top us. [Bleacher Report]
  • Bleedin Blue has their weekend round-up. Is it wishful thinking to hope we can keep winning in spite of the injuries? [Bleedin Blue]

Hockey News:

  • 5 games last night.  The lowly Ducks beat Nashville, The Habs thumped the Jets and Colorado lost again. [NHL.com]
  • 3 games tonight. The Hawks play the red hot Kings and the Central-leading stars play the hapless Leafs. Win or lose, let's hope the Hawks beat up on the Kings real good like.  [NHL.com]
  • Puck Daddy's 3 stars from last night.  Our old friend Chris Stewart gets a mention. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Hawks demote Brian Bickell to the AHL...in related news, the "highest paid AHL player's club" has a new member. [Puck Daddy]
  • Breaking News: The Coyotes are definitely relocating!.  Just kidding.  We still don't know.  But other cities in AZ are interested in the struggling franchise. [Puck Daddy]
  • Chicago is struggling.  If that doesn't brighten your Monday, nothing will. [Chicago Tribune]
  • There is a (temporary) new king of the Central...and it looks like the Stars are the real deal. [Puck Daddy]
  • ESPN affiliated sports' site Grantland.com is officially dead and gone. Read some of their best articles before FEMA launches a secret plan to turn their servers into concentration camps for gun-owning Americans...or something. [Down Goes Brown]

Other Crap:

  • Decoding 8 bizarre movie scenes. [Cracked]
  • Apparently people were still playing baseball last night.  Someone won.  Now it's finally over. [Buzzfeed]
  • How to plan for a Beer Festival.  Also known as how I want to spend the end of the world. [Deadspin]
  • Before you head out to the beer festival, enjoy a pint of The Sixth Glass from Boulevard, in honor of the lesser team from Missouri getting their first World Series win in 30 years. This Sweet/Smooth/Malty nectar of the gods will remind you that you don't really care about baseball once October hits. [Untappd]

The Kings are coming to town tomorrow.  After a crappy start, they are pretty hot right now. So, they probably think they can waltz in here and beat our injured Blues squad.

Hahah. Wishful thinking.
