Let's hope [insert player here] will spark Stewart's scoring. This time it's Steen, next will be McDonald.

Wow, without the kids, the Oilers lineup looks really bad.

I was at the game a couple weeks ago. Can't sleep on the Oilers....

....then again they also had Eberle and Hall in the lineup too. Plus Alex Steen and Kris Russell are back.

I would hope we don't lose this game. Also really hope Reaves isn't scratched in favor for Crombeen.

I agree, it kinda reminds me of another team a few years back (). I know what happened to Hall and RNH but whats up with Eberle?

Anyways, tonight should be a game we should win but you never know, especially after our last game with them, im sure that left a sour taste in their mouths so I would bet they come out hungry. I think Bergy finally gets back on the scoreboard tonight in a 4-1 victory. Go Blues!

just based on the team averages, I'm going to guess we get 31 shots and 26 shots against. Also I'll go out on a limb and say we win 3-2 with 1 ppg for each team.

I hope we come out flying, and don't sleepwalk through the first period. The Oilers may be damaged, but don't take them for granted. That being said, 3 - 1 Blues.

It looks like Eberle is drawing back in for the Oil as per Jason Gregor:

Good luck tonight guys

Eberle back in the line-up

not that happy with Russell back, wanted to see Steener again

Perron-Dubnyk rematch could get interresting

should be a win, but everyone who expects a blowout could get dissapointed...the Blues are way to boring to score more than 3

LET`S GO BLUES!

Was really hoping Steener would be back tonight, oh well I just hope he is back in time for a back2back against the Wings and Pens. Wings are always tough and I know the Pens are injury depleted but they still deadly.

Bummer about Steen but there is no need to rush him, we need him healthy down the stretch so Id rather him miss a few more now than come in early and make it worse.

This is a trap game if I ever saw one.

The Redwings just got trucked by the Islanders. The Blues need to win this game and show the maturity to take every team seriously.

Went on NHL.com and saw there was a link to an article about Steen not being ready yet.

This along with the other articles about Halak and Armstrong that have been coming out means that blues are media worthy, and (maybe more importantly) that Blues fans are growing in number to give these articles more views than they may have in the past.

I think we win, and i think we will see a renewed dedication to the goals in front of the net. An article came out recently where Hitch said we are playing well but we need to find another gear and get goals driving to the front of the net, like oshie did. I think after two extra intense practices we will see some fire in players that was lacking before.

Debate night! Blues 7-0-0 with 5 shutouts and two goals allowed total on debate/primary/caucus night! Of course if this goes wrong we'll know it wasn't really about the whole field just Rick Perry. (Oops.)
