The Blues have seen overtime ten times so far this season out of twenty games played. If you think that’s a little excessive, then yeah, it probably is.
Tonight, the team’s hoping a little oomph to the lineup will result in a clean home victory - turns out, Klim Kostin will be making his regular season debut. Kostin had a very strong pre-season but needed some work on defensive responsibilities.
“He’s an NHL skater. He’s got an NHL shot… and he’s a big guy,” Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said after a team practice at Centene Community Ice Center on Thursday. “He just has to keep it simple, forechecking and getting to the net, being physical, things like that. His game has to be simple. And if he keeps it simple, he can be a good player.”
Here’s to Klim. Welcome aboard.
