Blues Aim to Finish the First of Two Long Road Trips on a Positive Note

The Blues lost a very close game to the Canucks in Vancouver Thursday night. The game was tight, but it looked like the Blues just didn’t have enough juice to finish the job. Blues fans can’t complain however, as such a close game against arguably the best team in the NHL was probably more than some fans thought would happen. It was the second of back to back games, and was their fifth in a row on the road. With this last game remaining, the blues have 8 out of 10 possible points on the trip so far. Dare I say, even if the Blues lose tonight against the San Jose Sharks, 8 out of 12 points would be a great success. That being said, 10 out of 12 would be absolutely incredible, and would show massive improvement in away games for the Blues.
