Honestly not that impressed with Nashville at even strength.

If they aren't on the power play they aren't that great a team. The officiating sucks tonight. If we can stay out of the box, I like our chances.

Some early season adversity is good for a team. You don't want to kick everybody's ass from the get go.

Is it me or has the Backes oshie perron line looked like complete garbage. And this is probably the worst I have seen petro play in a long time, not a good game for him at all..

Preds are a good team, not like the Blues are playing the BJ's.

Tarasenko was a total bust in that period.

Not a single point. Maybe we can sell high on him and get a decent return in a trade.

I think the Jackets are going to be a fairly decent team this year as well. Certainly no longer a pushover.

I hear if we add on a 1st rounder we might be able to get Murray from CBJ

I don't see it that way at all. Preds are playing a much more organized game than Detroit did, and that is magnifying the small the mistakes the Blues are making.

Toss in some poor judgement and getting outplayed on special teams and you have what you see now.

It would make more sense if the Blues played this sloppy in the first game.

Preds gap control, back-checking, and positional play on the cycle has been very strong. You're not going to generate a lot of quality first-shot chances against this team if you aren't playing a very clean game from a technical standpoint. The Blues aren't.

Those flaws don't show against a team that plays as bad as Detroit did in those areas last game.

LOL Tarasenko jumping on Weber to defend Steen.

What did Petro just get a penalty for? Sounded like the ref just said "shielding the puck". Is that a new rule, or one they never enforce?

EDIT: Never mind. I see it. I'm glad they called that. I hate it when players do that.

He knocked him right on his ass too.

That was as good as Eller face washing Pronger in his first NHL game.

Ok im not one to complain about the refs but did Petro seriously just get a penalty for being knocked over and landing on the puck?

Did Pietrangelo get that for closing his hand on the puck?
