Predators Game Highlights:

The Blues took on the Nashville Predators tonight at Scottrade. More like the Blues went through the motions, but couldn't even do that well. Picking up the action in the second period, Nashville makes it 1-0 on a shot from the top of the faceoff circle. Different Weber, but same result. Yannick beats Allen.

The Predators make it 2-0 on a powerplay chance. After a lucky bounce of Steen's fat foot, Filip Forsberg makes it 2-0.

Not only were the Blues shooting themselves in the foot by taking dumb penalties, but they weren't able to solve Nashville's starter Juuse Saros.

Back to the second period now, Viktor Arvidsson just makes everyone look foolish on this play. Viktor moves around Bouwmeester, avoids the Allen poke check, and nets the puck for a 3-0 Predators lead.

Carter Hutton comes in for the third period and I'm not sure if two goalies could have stopped Colin Wilson on this rebound. Put us out of our misery Mr. Wilson.

The aforementioned Hutton got the only Blues highlight of the night making a save on the aforementioned Wilson.

Blues lose 4-0. Everyone and everything was awful. BUT WINTER CLASSIC RIGHT.

From The Twitter Machine:

Wash, rinse, repeat.

Player of the Game:
