Avalanche at Blues Game Three GameDay Thread

Wheel of morality, turn turn turn... eventually

NHL: Colorado Avalanche at St. Louis Blues Jeff Le-USA TODAY Sports

At the time of writing this GameDay Thread, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety have yet to decide on Nazem Kadri’s punishment for a high shoulder to head hit on Justin Faulk. Thanks to that hit and an elbow to the head of Robert Bortuzzo, this is the mess that the Blues’ lines for tonight’s game will more than likely be:

Forwards

Barbashev - O’Reilly - Kyrou

Schwartz - Schenn - Tarasenko

Hoffman - Bozak - Thomas

Clifford - Sanford - Blais

Defense

Parayko

Krug

Scandella

Mikkola

(Dunn)

(Santini)

(Reinke)

Goalie

Binnington

The parentheses mean that no one has any idea who the bottom pairing is. That’s fun.

If you believe Sammy Blais, the Blues should be extra motivated tonight against a team that took out two key players.

If you watched any game the Blues played against Vegas after Mark Stone knocked Tyler Bozak out of commission for a quarter of the season, you may take that with a grain of salt.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you hope that Blais is onto something.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
