The Blues have started the season on a tear. Can they keep it up?

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Fifty years ago, the Blues scored their first goal on a shot from Larry Keenan thanks to a pass from Bob Plager. Tonight, the Blues can start their season 5-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Tonight, the Blues' have tweaked their lines, with Ivan Barbashev on the second line with the dynamic duo of Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn. All eyes will be on the blue line, though - the Blues' defense has been on a tear. Alex Pietrangelo is second on the team in points with two goals and four assists, while Carl Gunnarsson has two goals. Joel Edmundson and Colton Parayko also have goals so far.

The Blues, despite injuries, have been a delight to watch this season (third period jitters notwithstanding). Tonight they face a Florida Panthers team who have only played two games.

Let's keep this roll going. Let's do this.

Let's go Blues.
