GameThread for St. Louis Blues at Calgary Flames, Oct 22, 2016

Brian Elliott sits this one out, and Carl Gunnarsson returns to the Blues' lineup.

Brian Elliott hasn't fared well since coming to the Calgary Flames. In fact, the only two games in which Calgary has gotten a point - one win, one OTL - have seen backup Chad Johnson in net. The Flames are going with their hot hand tonight, so the Blues won't get an opportunity to exploit their knowledge of Ells' playing style.

Sure. I'm sure that tonight's decision has nothing at all to do with Elliott's 4.72 GAA.

The Blues need to finish up this Western Canada road trip with a win. Losing in overtime to the Canucks and in regulation to the Edmonton Oilers wasn't what the team and its fans expected, but that happens when your offense dries up inexplicably. Tonight's a good chance to grab two more points before returning home for a rematch against the Flames on Tuesday.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you're happy you won't have to stay up this late again for a while.

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