We're going to be out of a playoff spot after our loss to LA on Thursday.

No our defense has been abysmal.

The Blues forwards are playing horrible defense.

Putting Halak in. This is awful! Let's hope this can this doesn't affect Allen's confidence, and this opportunity and The Blues needing Halak to perform spur him on to start a hot streak.

As has their's, yet we're down by 3. Why is that? Khabibulin has made the big saves, and Allen did not. I'm not blaming Allen entirely, just saying he hasn't played as well as Khabibulin and there's no denying that.

The Blues continue to shoot low or right in his chest,no goalie is going to stop Eberle 5 ft out when he puts in right under the bar.

Allen deserves no blame whatsoever. All three goals were complete and total breakdowns that lead to glorious chances for their best players. He had no chance on any of them.

I place them blame on the Blues players, not the tenders.

Khabibulin has made some good saves, has he really been challenged? I don't think so.

The Blues waste good scoring chances with shots that are fairly easy to save. Tank made a great move, but honestly, that wasn't hard to stop, Khabi added a little flash to it.

The Blues get in good position and don't challenge the tender often. Everyone on here believes that means the goaltender must be standing on his head, but I think we make goalies look better than they are.

Edmonton has buried their chances, the Blues have squandered them.

Now we are chasing the puck like headless chickens, holding no shape.

Lol no. Khabibulin has made some UNREAL saves tonight. Both Perron and Steen made good moves on their breakaways, and were robbed, Tarasenko put the puck over his pad and he caught it with the glove. He's the best player on the ice tonight, and that's not even debatable.

Allen would have had to make some incredible saves. Bonus points if he does, but I don't fault him if he doesn't.

Could he have tried to put it up the wall? Sure. But AP and the Oiler player were both standing directly in front of him. Not to mention he's right handed and literally right up against the boards. Not much room for leverage there. He -was- trying to get it deep imo, it just happened that he decided to try and go more towards the middle of the ice, where he had more leverage, and it popped off a pad right to the Oilers.

Not to mention Jacks totally misplayed the two on one, he was actually stepping forward when Perron made the play, instead of playing conservative and making sure the puck went in deep before following it up....then he couldn't decide if he wanted to skate forwards or backwards, ending up putting himself behind the play in general, and forced to make a diving-forward-stick-stretched-out prayer on the play, where if he had just skated a little better would have been in a much better position to block that pass.

Does Perron deserve some blame for that goal? Yes. But AP and Jacks both had opportunities to make stronger plays and didn't.
Well Perron should have put that puck in deep before he lost it. Pietrangelo never even had control of that puck, it amazes me people think the was his fault. The play should have been getting the puck in deep and it has been like that since last season.

SSSHHHHHH. Don't say the Blues are shooting to the chest. The Bulin wall is standing tall tonight.

Don't care if we get the extra penalty. That was what Backes needed to do to get the team going.

Well you aren't going to score on a break when you try to elevate and its at pad level,not on the ice,not five hole, and not up enough to get over the glove/blocker.

Khabibulin hasn't been tested?!? LMAO what an absolutely idiotic thing to say. 2 breakaways and 3 glorious chances in the slot, but they were all routine saves. Allen faces a breakaway, a shot in the slot, and an odd man rush but he had absolutely no chance. That doesn't make any sense.
