The 2011-2012 NHL schedules were released for each team last week. For myself, I really wanted to see when Winnipeg would be visiting St. Louis so that I could make the trip(Just a former Thrashers fan holding a grudge). Unfortunately, the only game between the two will be in Manitoba. For the rest of you, I’m sure you’re just waiting to see the return of former Blues such as Erik Johnson, Eric Brewer, and Brad Boyes. Well here are some regular-season highlights for the 2011-2012 season.
- Home Opener: October 8th Vs. Nashville
- October 26th @ Western Conference Champion Canucks
- November 4th Vs. Western Conference Champion Canucks
- November 12th Vs. Brewer and the Lightning
- December 2nd @ Johnson and the Avalanche
- January 7th Vs. Johnson and the Avalanche
- January 12th: 2nd visit from Canucks
- January 21st Vs. Boyes and the Sabres
- February 11th: 2nd visit from Johnson and Avalanche
- February 22nd Vs. Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins
- February 25th @ newly relocated Winnipeg Jets
- March 1st: 2nd trip to Vancouver
- March 17th @ Brewer and the Lightning
Again, these are only some of the highlighted games. And while single-game tickets are not yet on sale, full-season tickets are here. It should be an interesting year with a ton of exciting games. We’ll just have to wait until October 8th to see how exciting it will be!
