Elliott made a couple of saves, but he would have to be Hasek in his prime with this offense tonight.

It was, and we didn't play well. If we play well, we can certainly beat them.

According to NHLN Halak re injured his groin (which we already knew) and they said that Allen will be recalled. So Halak must be going back on IR. I wonder if they tried to rush Halak back because of how bad Elliott has been.

Ouch. That's a big blow to this team if he's out for an extended period of time and Elliott doesn't turn it around. He played a good first period tonight, though. Made a couple of big saves, which he hadn't done AT ALL the last couple of games.

I get it. You can say we won't beat many teams with this quality of play but when I say the Kings are the superior team you decide to take issue with it? Hmm.

If Halak is out for awhile we are in deep trouble. Elliott cannot play this compacted schedule by himself, especially with how bad he's playing now. I like Allen but he is not ready yet, lets hope Halak is back soon.

All in all the Blues didn't play well, but they did keep shots to the outside. At this point we need to keep the quality of shots down and make the best of the breaks we get.

I don't believe the Kings are an "unstoppable juggernaut of a team". They turned it on when they needed to last year and on paper they have a solid team.

The only problem I have is that they beat the Blues at their own game.

When we need him to come up with a big save, LOL-iott comes up empty. Repeatedly.

Not enough backchecking... lack of movement of their feet. Standing and waiting is just not going to cut it. I can't believe they forgot how to play D!

This is sickening.

This is the least confident I have been in a Blues team in a long time. They just look lottery pick bad.

Zero offensive pressure. It's all one and done.

He made a couple big saves but you can't leave him out to dry that much. A 2 on 1 and a semi break, Carter has found himself alone twice and scored both. Our d coverage needs to be fixed ASAP.

Makes me wonder if Hitch is trying something "new" and not the "trap" for this season. And it just isn't working for them.

Man Cole is looking flat... they just skated right through him and into Elliott. I think Elliott is doing okay.... the team just isn't closing the lanes at all. It's just awful positioning.
