Wild at Blues Game Three GameDay Thread

Will the Blues come out guns blazing tonight at home?

According to SB Nation readers, the smart money is barely on the Blues:

The Blues/Wild series might be the closest of the playoffs in nearly every possible way. Tied 1-1 right now, the series shifts to St. Louis tonight, and the Blues are going to have to fight through a defensive deficit tonight to go up 2-1.

Hopefully Torey Krug, Justin Faulk, Colton Parayko, and Niko Mikkola are set to pull some big minutes tonight - Calle Rosen and Steven Santini are, more than likely, who the Blues will have out there as a third pairing. Will the addition of Dakota Joshua keep the Wild far enough from Ville Husso that it keeps the heat off of the defense? At the very least, if they just keep Joel Eriksson Ek and Kirill Kaprizov away from the Blues’ net.

Buckle your seatbelts and grab a beer.
