GameThread for Nashville Predators at St.Louis Blues, Dec 30th, 2016

NHL: Nashville Predators at St. Louis Blues Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Allen gets the nod for an important home start against the struggling Nashville Predators. PK Subban has been out of the lineup for a handful of games, and Smashville is trying to keep their heads above water as Chicago and Minnesota pad their comfy leads in the Central.

Yikes. The Preds will be desperate for a crucial divisional win, and if the Blues want to cement their place as one of the top three clubs in the Central, they must win games like these. Personally, I’ll be keeping an eye on Shakey Jakey - Allen’s had a handful of questionable outings as of late, and he could definitely improve on that .905 save percentage (34th in the NHL). A stable win here could go a long way in boosting his confidence.

This is your GameThread, get in here and comment away. Go Blues, beat those pisscats. Say a few extra prayers to the hockey gods - we need some cold weather for the Winter Classic.
