Blues at Stars GameDay Thread: Walker, Pouliot to debut

Carl Gunnarsson is sick.

You know, for most of this season, Blues fans could point at the defense and go “well, at least they’re healthy.”

Never mind.

Carl Gunnarsson is out sick tonight, so Derrick Pouliot is in next to Faulk on defense. Oskar Sundqvist, of course, was injured Wednesday night and so he’ll be out for the forseeable future, giving Nathan Walker a chance to skate with Mackenzie MacEachern and Jacob de la Rose.

It is worth saying that Walker and Pouliot are one and two respectively on the Rampage this season in points, so this is more or less an opportunity for the Blues to show off their depth. The team would rather not be in this position, but with so many players out, it’s good to have this level of depth to draw on.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you’d just like people to stop dropping like flies.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
