Good morning Blues fans! Welcome to the weekend everyone. We’re all hoping the team can make it a good weekend.
The St. Louis Blues aren’t who they thought we were right now. They aren’t as good as they looked in the first three games and they aren’t struggling due to the reasons feared before the season.
Still, though we are all concerned with what is wrong with the team, they are still in a guaranteed playoff spot. They aren’t very far from the top of the division either.
It does not feel that way since they’ve taken a bit of a nose dive after such a strong start. However, just because we are in a negative frame of mind doesn’t mean we only have to focus on the negative facts when there are positive ones.
Now, the team is switching their focus to the weekend. They were given a day off practice to rest and take their minds off the game and hopefully get refreshed for back-to-back home games.

They’ll start things off with a game against former divisional foe, the Columbus Blue Jackets. Despite their current spot outside the playoff picture, they won’t be an easy win.
They are currently +12 in goal difference. They aren’t lighting up the world in terms of goals scored, but they are scoring and definitely keeping them out.
That’s not exactly a situation made in heaven for a team struggling to score goals right now. The Blues are going to need to dig deep, find something and get back on the winning track.

Have a great day Blues fans. Heaven help us if we get another bad game.
