Blues at Golden Knights GameDay Thread: Measuring stick

A win will go a long way to sealing the Blues’ playoff deal.

If there’s one thing that’s not nearly discussed enough about David Perron, it’s his honesty:

The Golden Knights have shellacked the Blues in several games during this season. Obviously, a key to winning tonight is getting Vegas’ high powered offense to cool off, but the Blues may face a challenge in doing that. They’re short Vince Dunn and Torey Krug on the blueline tonight, and up front Sammy Blais and Vladimir Tarasenko are still out. The Blues are going to have to dig deep, and there are few Blues who have dug deeper this year than David Perron.

A month ago tonight, Jordan Binnington had to make 50 saves in the Blues’ 3-1 victory over the Golden Knights. It was a slump-buster. Here’s hoping Binnington won’t have to make nearly as many saves tonight en route to another win.

This is your GameDay thread. Comment like you need a playoff clinching win.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
