Nilstorp in net for the Stars.

No Benn or Jagr.

The Blues outclass them and Stars fans have complained a lot about their defense, but after four straight divisional games, this is the time when the Blues are at risk for a bit of a let-down. Gotta stay focused, stay out of the box, and keep the powerplay hot.

Benn has been signed, and their lineup is TBD. Have they announced officially that he won't play?

He’s not expected to play Saturday because he needs to get some immigration paper work filed through the system. He and the Stars are hoping he’ll be ready to go Monday in Columbus.

“I am going to definitely push myself in these three practices I get, hopefully I can get in there Monday and jump right into it,” Benn said. “Be a top six guy and contribute.”

Good luck tonight guys (though comparing the two teams you shouldn't need it, lol).

Also, don't worry about taking penalties because as long as our coach keeps putting Robidas and Morrow on the ice for powerplays, you're more likely to score shorthanded than we are to score on the powerplay.

Never even heard of their backup tonight, no idea what to expect out of him. Nice to catch them without Benn in the lineup though. 4-1 Blues. Frank, Backes x2, Shatty

Officially? Not as far as I'm aware.

However, he's coming off the shutout (with a day of rest between this game and his last start), and the next two games are back-to-back. Hitchcock's previous usage patterns in similar situations strongly suggest that Halak will get the start tonight and Elliott will get the start on Sunday.

I hate this. I hate playing rookie goalies with minimal experience. Always go into the game with high expectations, see very little work ethic, then see a Blues loss.

Hitch needs them focused tonight.

I have to work tonight for this one

Looks like I'm setting the DVR.

As far Jamie Benn goes I saw this tweet from Andy Strickland earlier.

https://twitter.com/andystrickland/s...88975327535104

"Plan coming into today was that #stars forward Jamie Benn would not play tonight against #stlblues"

Good to see. I'd like to see more of Redden before committing to him or Cole.

I'm not sure how good Nilstorp is, but anyone is better than facing Lehtonen. He always plays great against the Blues.

Nilstorp didn't look too bad the last time I saw him...But the Blues know they're rested and can dominate entire games.

Without Jagr and Benn we should win this one no problem. I like 3-1 Blues. Backes, Bergy and Osh find the back of the net.

Going in with tempered expectations, I could see the Blues letting up in this one, and the Stars are good enough to beat them if the Blues don't come to play.

Since I am a midnight shiftworker, I'll do what I always do, record the game and watch it tomorrow morning. Anyone else work graveyard shift?

Let's go BLUES!!!
