GameThread for Florida Panthers at St. Louis Blues, Jan 9, 2018

Hopefully the Blues don't take an early vacation tonight against Florida.

When you compare the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers, it's safe to say that one of those two teams will be going deep into the playoffs and the other will not.

Remember, that stuff doesn't matter in the regular season. The Blues are 0-3 against teams from the Sunshine State. What looks like a surefire win on paper isn't that once you get onto the ice.

Jake Allen has won just one game in his last eight starts, though to be fair, the Blues barely scored in most of those starts. A solid appearance by Allen tonight coupled with some actual offense could hold the kitties off.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you don't need a stinking vacation.

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