The last time that the Blues were in Philly, they didn't exactly feel any brotherly love from the Flyers, losing 4-1. This time, post trade-deadline, the team's welcomed a few new brothers to the fold. Barret Jackman and Rob Bortuzzo already are feeling it:
... Jackman recalls Bortuzzo calling him out a few times when the Pens were in town recently.
"I think he chirped me a couple of times," Jackman said. "We’ll let him get settled in before we bring that up."
The Nashville Predators, who everyone believed would never not get a point ever again, has somehow lost four games in a row. The Blues are four points behind the Preds with two games in hand. The Flyers are five points behind the Bruins for the last playoff spot in the East. Both teams have a lot to play for. This may not be a Plager Brothers/Broad Street Bullies level game as far as toughness goes, but don't expect these guts to hug it out tonight.
This is your gameday thread. Comment like you're excited about the number of .gifs there are of Olli Jokinen out there.
Let's do this. Let's go Blues.
