Finally tomorrow, real hockey starts in St. Louis. No more of this preseason does not count stuff. No more lets let our AHLers and juniors players get ice time. Tomorrow night is the real deal stats count night. The St Louis Blues face off against the Nashville Predators at Scottrade. Lots of energy should be shown tomorrow night and I wish I was in town to watch, and if anyone has extra free tickets let me know I will drive from Kansas City to watch and cheer on our boys in blue.
Now I have already wrote up a division match up against the Preds but, with this being the opener there is extra motivation to win it. I expect the Preds to come out full bore as well and play their typical boring defensive style game. What we did witness this preseason is the emergence of Evgeny Grachev. Early reports say him and Porter are the healthy scratches this game which leaves your line up here.
Todays post is kind of short because of the match up against the rival here in the central, be sure to check out the Preds blog. And enjoy real hockey, its finally here.
