You can almost sense some sort of theme developing with today's pre-game quotes in Jeremy Rutherford's latest Post-Dispatch article.
"They outplayed us substantially in the last game in their building," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "They won a lot of the puck battles, they won a lot of the puck fights that ended up allowing them to have possession. We were on our heels for most of that game. Hopefully we've got a little bit more energy to play tonight."
"We need to really get into the game early," Blues forward Magnus Paajarvi said. "It's easy to get into the game after back to back, but obviously the fatigue level for them is a little bit more than us, so we've got to try to utilize that and be heavy on them."
So, what you're saying here is that you need to have an energy level higher than the one that I (and the rest of the United States) had Thursday evening?
Sounds like a plan.
This is your gameday thread. Comment like you've slept off all of that stuffing.
Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
