Blues at Oilers GameDay Thread: No changes needed

If they’re winning, they’re winning.

The Blues aren’t changing a thing for tonight, and why should they? They’ve won five in a row, OT or no OT. Something seems to be working. What’s most incredible about this winning streak is that it’s been done without the services of Vladimir Tarasenko.

Perhaps with Tarasenko the goal differential would be a bit higher, and more games would be won in regulation, but that the team’s not shut down with the loss of a key cog is impressive.

Jake Allen being in net is the only tweak, and while it appears to be trending that he’s more a backup and less of a 1-A, the team still has pulled out wins with him in net.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you’re ok with any sort of win you can get.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
