Great, clean hit. I haven't been a fan of D'Agostini this year, but when he is on the ice, the other teams don't seem to score. This hurts our depth and if he is out with a concussion, Stewart HAS to step up and start producing.
The last few games, when they show shots of the Blues' bench, pretty much everyone looks like they have stitches or a black eye or something. I feel like this team is paying the price they need to to win games. I'm not so sure every team is doing that right now. More than anything else, I think this is something Hitchcock has brought out of them. Its also a testament to Backes' leadership.
Poor Sobotka. Guys has really taken a beating lately.
Strickland said that he turned a corner, but that was all he said, so I think it pretty much means he is just improving like the past reported said. I don't think the degree of the concussion was ever released, so I don't think we will know anything or be able to speculate his return until McDonald starts skating.
