Oh, coaches interviews with Ken Hitchcock are always a goldmine of quotes, especially when the Blues are down in a series and playing like shit (for the most part). Enjoy.
Hitchcock: "We're going to have to do the things that are really relevant in our game at a much higher level." #OurBlues— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) April 21, 2015
No way. Mind = blown.
This one, though. This is my favorite.
Hitch: "They've got five goals when you count the ones with the goalie in the net; that's not much." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) April 21, 2015
Congrats to the Blues, who have now hit the "moral victory" stage of the playoffs.
And then, finally, there's this immortal tribute to the steep learning curve that is getting your asses handed to you three (four?) years in a row in the playoffs:
David Backes: "I need to be the first guy on the page and leading by example. Hopefully that creates guys joining the battle." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) April 21, 2015
Blah blah blah.
This is your morning open thread. Check back later for whatever Hitch throws at us, some of CCR's Road Music, and your GDT. Head over to Hockey Wilderness to see how they're coping with being up 2-1.
