Perhaps there was a second spitter.

While I was glad Steen didn't haunt us once again, it seems you have a new guy in town to handle that (Allen). I thought Burrows had him dead to rights on that breakaway in OT...what a save by the kid.

Entertaining game - looking forward to more of them. Cheers.
Was going to post this in your post game talk but it's closed.

I was on the edge of my seat for this one more than any other this season. Good atmosphere and you guys have a dangerous team. Really liked the way your PK was so aggressive. Good luck against the Blackhawks!

You know...Oshie has one of the best shootout moves in the game. Can't blame Luongo for guessing he would do it once again.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw him. I guarantee Lu has seen both of Oshie's go-to shootout moves and he was just waiting for that first head fake to tell him which way he was going to go. Oshie just took a chance and it paid off.

Man, did Oshie make Luongo look like a holey goalie on that shootout shot.

Jeremy Rutherford came on 101.1 espn on my way home from work. Said Allen gets the start tomorrow night and that the Blues r stuck in Vancouver still cause there airplane was missing a part. So they aren't expecting to get back here in St. Louis till about 2:00 a.m.

Glad Allen is starting again tomorrow. He's deserved it.

Anyone else beginning to temper expectations on this back to back? Blues are still in Vancouver and have to fly in to St. Louis to play a rested Sharks squad and then pack up afterward to fly into Denver which is a tough city to play in no matter what the circumstances are. Bleh

Swift aviation is a joke. Hell at this point the Blues would be lucky to get in by noon tomorrow.

Do the Blues have to fly on one airline or something? You'd think some airline would want to come pick up an NHL team. I'm not sure how the travel part of all that works though.

Not sure if there's a contract that prevents them from flying other airlines, but Swift filed for bankruptcy protection last year. The Blues, Avs, Hawks, Preds, and Bruins were on contracts with them to start the year. Swift cut its ties with the Preds, and the Avs asked to be let out too. Seems like the Blues, Hawks, and Bruins would be wise to follow suit.

If there's any game this year we've gone into where I honestly expect us to lose it's this one. I thought this before I heard about the plane fiasco. I think San Jose's gonna come out flying and since they've lost however many in a row now they're due for one of those games where they get a few lucky bounces leading to goals and then niemi will probably get bailed out by one or two posts/ crossbars tonight. I just hope we bring that high compete level, and hopefully the blues will prove me wrong
