Normally, I would think the Blues would come out in dominant fashion after the sweep last season. But I thought that after the Detroit loss on the Backes penalty. Then after the Nashville embarrassment.

I think the team psyche is a bit fragile right now. There were some positives after the Anaheim game.

I actually think the majority of the team's problems can be traced back to poor goaltending. Yeah, there are some questionable decisions with the puck around the blueline occasionally, but guys are trying to do each others' jobs on defense...and its because of a mistrust of the goalie (in my opinion). Hopefully having Halak back (and hopefully playing sharp) will help.

Its nice to be on the good end of the back-to-backs for a while (the opponent is the tired one, and we're at home.) I'm disappointed they didn't get the two points from Anaheim, but at least they managed to force OT.
