Jay Bouwmeester always seems older than what he is - he's just 33 (which in hockey years I suppose is elderly) but it always feels like he's been playing for years longer than that. Tonight is his 1000th game, which is a milestone that he should've hit a long time ago, but he's missed some time here and there after his iron man streak ended.
So, congrats to JayBo on 1000 games. Not many NHL players have that kind of health and longevity. There are only 16 other active players who have played as many or more games as Bouwmeester.
The Blues will have to deal with Henrik Lundqvist tonight. Considering their scoring issues as of late, that probably isn't the news that they wanted to hear. The line-up's unchanged, so something else is going to have to click for them to have any offensive luck.
This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you're happy for an NHL player who may or may not moonlight as an accountant.
Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
