Early afternoon weekday games are an abomination.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

It's a Federal holiday today, so all of you Federal employees out there, enjoy today's Blues/Islanders game. The rest of us will have to make due with streaming on our phones or getting in-game update notifications.

And, as usual, the afternoon bout takes place when the Blues are playing an East Coast team. What is this mess? Could it not happen on a West Coast trip? Could it just not happen at all?

Set your fantasy line-ups before noon.

The Blues are looking for their third win in a row, while the Islanders would like to capitalize on a strong showing against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

Order some lunch delivery and settle in, and whatever you do, don't let your boss see what you're doing today around noon.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
