The Blues need to add to their division lead, and the Jets need to stay afloat in the busy Western Conference.

Why are the Blues playing so well? David Backes has an idea.

"I think it’s a combination of playing in the offense zone as much as we can," said Blues captain David Backes. "That’s our recipe, along with some great goaltending and great penalty kills that have limited the other teams’ chances. When we do give up a good chance, our goaltenders have been real solid.

"Knock on wood that shutout streak continues and we talk about it again after tonight."

Well, Captain Dave, considerin that you've mentioned the s-word, I won't hold my breath. But limiting the Jets' to just a goal or two while taking advantage of Ondrej Pavelec, who is tonight's starter. Flubber Pads McGee has been playing pretty not badly recently. Let's see if the Blues can change that.

This is your GameDay Thread. Let's see if the comments can exceed Pavs' GAA. It couldn't be that hard to do.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
