Another week of winning hockey, and an additional voice supplied by our own Robb Tufts!

Another wonderfully wild week of Blues hockey, and this time around we bring reinforcements! We're joined by's own resident number-cruncher Robb Tufts. Aside from learning more about one of our other favorite topics - beer- he also helps educate us a little on how the Blues look within the analytics context. Also, it's not just the stats that have gotten all fancy. We cover the Blues games against Montreal, Brooklyn, and New Jersey, and talk a little about what makes teams work and how they adapt to changing systems and rosters. There's even a few rants sprinkled in, just for good measure.

Give it a listen, eh?

And if you're not already following Robb on twitter (@robbtuftshockey), well ... you've been doing it wrong. No time like the present to fix that.
