Flyers At Blues Morning Open Thread: Hold A Lead

Last week, the Blues were unable to score more than one goal against the Flyers. Since the offense seems to be awake now, will tonight be different?

The Blues have a three game at-home winning streak against the Flyers going, but let's be honest with ourselves. That doesn't make any difference. The Blues, while winning the last couple of games - ten goals in two games! The offense is fixed! - still has some defensive holes without Kevin Shattenkirk. As decent as Rob Bortuzzo's play has been, they'd probably like to have Zbynek Michalek in the lineup. After Tuesday's blown three-goal lead, I'm pretty sure that they're hoping that Jay Bouwmeester is feeling better for tonight.

According to Ken Hitchcock, JBo should be back, and Olli Jokinen will also be back in the lineup tonight. Brian Elliott will have a chance to redeem himself after a clunker on Tuesday (that was, really, just as much the fault of the team in front of him).

This is your morning open thread. Check back for a Memorabilia Memories, your preview, and your GDT shortly before puck drop. Head over to Broad Street Hockey and see how they're looking at the game tonight. Philly still has their sights on a playoff spot - the guys at BSH seem to be a little more realistic than that.
