If the Nashville Predators lose tonight to the New York Islanders and the Blues defeat the Winnipeg Jets, then third place in the Central Division is a lock. This is a big deal. because the Blues would rather face the Minnesota Wild than the Chicago Blackhawks in the playoffs.
Minny’s still slumping, and Bruce Boudreau has never met a playoff round that he didn’t like to have a good team lose in.
Winning tonight is kind of a big deal. The Blues haven’t beaten the Jets once this season, in an odd turn of fortunes.
Tonight’s as good of night as any to start.
