GameThread for St. Louis Blues at Calgary Flames, Mar 17, 2015

The Calgary Flames are in the midst of a playoff battle, while the Blues need to keep getting better to maintain the top slot in the Central.

The Blues have depth, and if you agree with what David Backes told Jeremy Rutherford, it's the first time in a while that they've been so fortunate.

"It’s going to take a team-first mentality to keep our head right," Backes said. "We need them all in and team first to help us win the next game. It’s going to be something new for us, but good teams have that depth, and in a playoff series when guys are getting hurt or carted off, we’re going to need someone to fill that void. The good thing is we feel we have a lot of bodies to do that."

The Blues do have a lot of bodies, and it's a crapshoot as to who sits right now and who doesn't, and apparently it is also a crapshoot as to who starts on the top line. Chances are good tonight, after the success in Dallas, that the SOB line will be together again. As far as the rest of the lines, who knows?
