Corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, soda bread and booze. Have fun and be safe tonight.

BLUES NEWS:

  • Not much yet on the Blues-Flames game, so we'll have to settle for this preview of virtually nothing. We should have more up on St. Louis Game Time later, so do check back with us for game day stuff. [Blues]

  • For the Flames' perspective of tonight's game, the best place to find it is Matchsticks and Gasoline. [Matchsticks and Gasoline]
