The Blues’ season schedule has been released

New, comments

Get ready for a whole new meaning to “season series.”

The NHL has released the complete 56 game schedules for all of their teams, and the most common things that fans are saying about them is “that’s a baseball schedule!”

It’s tight - the season starts for the Blues on the road against the Colorado Avalanche on January 13th, and the regular season doesn’t end until May 8th against the Vegas Golden Knights. The speed of the schedule - especially in February, where the Blues have 14 games in 28 days - is as though the All-Star Game and the Winter Olympics were both happening during the same season. The pace isn’t why fans are comparing it to a baseball schedule, though. That comparison is popping up because the schedule has been divided into two-game series of games to minimize travel for safety and scheduling purposes. The Blues start the season against the Avs on the 13th, but then they play them again on the 15th before heading home to face the San Jose Sharks for two games.

This will be something to behold for rivalry series, though the closest the Blues have to a rival in the West are the Avalanche. One bad hit doesn’t have to wait a month for retribution to be handed out. It has to wait a night.

It’s such a shame none of these series are against the Blackhawks:
