Sure, the pre-season version of "good" and the regular season of "good" are two different things, but when the Blues have iced the line consisting of Alexander Steen, Paul Stastny, and Vladimir Tarasenko, they have been very, very good - Stastny and Tarasenko both have three goals each. Granted, the firepower has come at home, against decidedly B-squad Columbus and Dallas teams, but there's no reason to think that taking the Tarasenkshow on the road tonight is going to change that in any way.
The Stars are still icing prospects, but tonight's defense doesn't look half bad:
Stars projected defense pairs for tonight: Goligoski-Klingberg: Oduya-Demers; Jokipakka-Benn. Niemi in goal.— Mark Stepneski (@StarsInsideEdge) September 29, 2015
Will the Blues be able to get to Antti Niemi? They shellacked Kari Lehtonen for six last week. Let's see if the Blues can't give the Stars a taste of the goaltending controversy that the Blues always seem to have.
And look! The game is on Dallas radio!

There's no baseball tonight, as the Cardinals' chance to clinch the Central has been rained out. Why not listen to some Blues hockey instead?
This is your gameday thread. Enjoy.
