Tired of seeing this team dump it in and fail to chase it. And the random time they do get the puck all that happens is they fire it around the boards and a. no ones there or b. it hops over their sticks.

Its like this team doesnt know how to pass.

And i've said it before, theres no breakout for this team, Ralph doesnt know what the hell hes doing.

I'm trying to find positives when there just aren't many.
They did a pretty goo job of keeping offensive zone pressure. Keep it up and results will come.

Not a bad road period, but we're playing at home

Stock managed to be more annoying than Healy. No small feat...

Good eyes. Its a beauty thing to see eh? STL has their **** wired straight. VERY impressed with their play. Right now the blues are a force to contend with when playing their game. I'm actually OK with how the Oilers matched up that period because of what a good system Blues are playing and with everybody buying in.

I said last years Kings would win the SC, and I said after 1 playoff game in first round. This year Blues are looking like that team. Simply the best team performances I'm seeing this year have been Blues hockey. If they go into the playoffs playing this brand of hockey Blues are going to go deep.

Ya I've kind of been thinking this all season, they should try a puck possession style, they just don't have the size for puck retrieval. Not to mention their dump in are often poorly placed. Also they always seem to just be trying to push the puck into the zone directly, they could use a little cycling back every once and a while to get the rest of the team in the play.

It feels like Hall is the captain.

Interviewed now on CBC, seems like he's the main guy interviewed after the games as well.

Ya I meant hits... not shots. They are being fairly physical which helps give it back to the Blues because they are a physical side as well.

Kelly Hrudey is quite possibly the worst color commentator of all time.

Ye, I still think he could use more opportunities to do what he does best..

He would probably finish what Hall couldnt

I don't see many Horcoff interviews these days.

Hrudey does seem let's say slightly deficient in the gray matter area.... seems like a nice enough guy though. Not an ******* like some.

He probably drinks before games, he seriously can't sound that bad.

A small play there that Khabi made poke checking the puck away from a Blues forward breaking in there with one minute left.

Dubnyk doesn't make that play, he just doesn't and that would end up being a serious scoring chance against Dubnyk probably with rebounds.

Khabi makes it go away in an instant.

A difference, yes.
