More on Steener: He skated yesterday but then told Hitch he didn't "feel right." Did not skate today and being kept out a precaution.

Big tilt tonight with two points on the line against a division rival. Was in Nashville in the SO loss when I felt we out played them for majority of the game and out shot them like 40-20, have to win those games.

We'll see how it is to play them without their top defenseman, but they still have the brick wall in Rinne in net so it's still going to be tough to score, but he's beatable.

Gonna be at the game tonight, pretty sure it's a sold out barn tonight so hopefully the STC is rocking.

Go Blues!

Dolph Ziggler 12-30-2011 02:33 PM

Have to find a way to win this game.

At the beginning of the season, the line I really wanted to see was Perron-Backes-Oshie. Obviously I'd rather have seen it for a reason other than a Steen injury but I'm intrigued.

CarvinSigX 12-30-2011 02:40 PM

5-1 Blues...Have to win tonight to stay with Detroit and Chicago.

frostyflo 12-30-2011 02:42 PM

omg Steener with a concussion?!? heavy news...at least Oshie is back

also not happy about Weber still sits. hate to see great players injured, even on the other team

LET`S GO BLUES!

Steen does NOT have a concussion, not sure why people can't realize that. Right now, he has concussion like symptoms, at least that is what being reported.

Given the way he plays against the Blues, 5 goals against Rinne seems pretty unlikely. But I'll definitely take it though. :)

ok, ok, didn`t read exactly, no need to go mad!

but how many players who had "concussion like symptoms" turned out to have no Concussion and returned a few days later?

Have to try to break him somehow. Some teams occasionally figure him out. Have an odd feeling we finally do it tonight.

He hasn't even been that great this season, why can't we score on him.

Besides last year, his Save% is the same as it has the two years before that, but he owns the Blues. In his career against the Blues in 17 games, he has a .931 Save% and 1.95 GAA with 1 SO.

Asking to get 5 on him is pretty optimistic, I think more realistic is three maybe four since Weber is out.

I hope you're right with five though!

I hope your odd feeling turns out to be right. It'd be great to light up the guy who has individually stolen away so many Blues victories in the past.

Fear not fellow Blues fans, the savior is here:

The Predators are so Pied.

bleedblue1223 12-30-2011 05:06 PM

This is going to be another 2-1 or 3-2 game, just hopefully we win it in regulation.

Saying he isn't that great is like saying Stamkos can't score, it will come back to haunt you, I hope your right though

Vikingstad 12-30-2011 05:33 PM

Halak or Elliot?

sh724 12-30-2011 05:38 PM

Probably Halak so Elliott can play in Detroit tomorrow tonight

stlblueskiwi 12-30-2011 05:39 PM

Need a win here, have to find a way to beat Rinne,
Go The Blues

BigB 12-30-2011 06:20 PM

It is to the point where I hate watching Pred games... I get so mad at Rinne's stopping us!

Rizzo90 12-30-2011 06:41 PM

No traffic and perimeter play would be my guess.

Rinne's good, our shots from distance or bad angles aren't going to beat him especially without traffic in front of the net.

Blues as a team need to figure out how to utilize the slot and create a lot more traffic if they want this success to continue.

CarvinSigX 12-30-2011 07:02 PM

Trust me, I need to be right...My cousin just came back from Iraq and now he's in jail for being the get away driver in an attempted armed robbery. Quarter million bail...Hopefully the Army gets him some help with that PTS.
