I missed all the games over the weekend but it sounds like the Blues' defensive team game returned in Alberta and that's a good sign. As I've said for a while, I've been resigned to the fact that there likely won't be any reinforcements coming before the trade deadline and that's fine as the biggest issue hanging over the team right now is goaltending and at least they have depth at the position. I have a feeling the net is officially Jake Allen's after reading Hitch's "weak goal" comment.
The Blues will make the playoffs and Chicago erased any drama in the hunt for the division so games like last night are frustrating but certainly not backbreaking. The Blues are much better than any of the teams seeded 8-13 and will jockey for position with the 4-7's and hopefully avoid LA in the first round. I'd be comfortable playing any of Anaheim, Vancouver, Minnesota, or Detroit.
Perhaps this weekend will finally propel them into re-finding the consistency from last season which will enable them to play their best hockey down the stretch and grab home-ice in the first round. Other than seeing Chicago three times in the final 17 games (including the final game of the season which could be irrelevant for them) the schedule isn't too bad.
