Mountain Grown or Mississippi Sanka?

Well it’s wake up and smell the coffee time tonight at the Savvis Center for the newly Nedveded Oilers. Just who will be forced to do their rendition of a W.C. HANDY inspired lament will be contested on the ‘live ice’ tonight in The Show Me State. The original St. Louis Blues was penned and was published in 1914 by William Christopher Handy, the world-famous "Father of the Blues" who was born Nov. 16, 1873 Florence, Alabama and died in New York City on March 28, 1958.

The path to the playoffs for the Boys on the Bustle leads through the Gateway Arch and head-on into a collision with a stubborn team of Missouri hockey mules. Can’t Weight & Company are itching to atone for getting burned by the Flames 2 – 4 at home last game. This hapless defeat, the 3rd loss in a row by the St. Louis, spoiled the home debut of new Blues coach Mike Kitchen who watched his team sink further into an early spring Missouri mud hole. Winless in their last five games and sinking faster than scuttled pirates’ galleon Joel Quenneville was forced to walk the plank. Will the new coach Kitchen team continue to sink and remain winless in seven?

Coming off a Ryan Smyth inspired and lifesaving overtime win against those never-say-die wily Coyotes, the ‘Oil’ will be debuting a new centerman in the person of Petr Nedved tonight in the state that Lewis and Clark mapped out 200 years ago. The Copper & Blue need to keep on the winning trail throughout this 3 game road trip to stay in contention to earn a playoff berth. Only a hard hitting effort with a 100% focus on going to the blue paint and turning rubber discs into that golden taste of victory will determine which team will keep a somewhat tenuous grasp on the brass ring which leads to the Fellowship of that Silver Cup. The Oilers need to string together an end of the season win streak or its pass out the toe tags.

Hopefully, reacquiring Jussi Markkanen will inject some life between the pipes and help the Oilers in net. The E-Towners will do better with a little less fish flopping in the cease and a lot more standup goaltending. Will Laraque out-power Tkachuk getting to the net; can Torres bang more pucks home than Mellanby? For the Oilers to make the post season they'll have to be grinning like Juan Valdez while the Blues are left crying in their Anheuser-Busch and moaning that old orginal W.C. HANDY tune!

You are clinically certifiable. You know that, don't you?

Holy hyperbole! I feel compelled to watch the next episode, just to see what happens.

As an older poster (in terms of when you signed up here at HFBoards) oil_85, I will suggest to you, if the Oilers can win tonight, then we can begin to believe at least a little again that the Copper & Blue might make the post season.

Of course The St. Louis Blues haven't missed the playoffs since ... what ... 1972?

I'm truly skeptical, but as long as they play good hockey down the stretch, I'll cheer my arse off! Even after tonight's tie.
