The St. Louis Blues are going to light up the night for Game 1 of their series against the Dallas Stars. Hopefully it works better than the last time.
The St. Louis Blues did not give their fans a very positive response the first time they utilized special LED wristbands. The visual was great, but the end result of the game was very not.
Now, the Blues are going to roll the dice with the display again. For Game 1 against the Dallas Stars, the Blues are going to do a special wristband display once more.
The Blues take on the the Stars at 8:30 on Thursday, April 25. They are asking fans to be in their seats by 8:15 to keep the organization of this display at its peak.
Visually, the stunt looked great the first time. Hopefully it will look just as good the second time around. I would also hope they make some tweaks and it is not just the same thing a second time around.

Also on the hopeful list, one would want a different outcome to the actual game. The Blues lost to the Winnipeg Jets by a score of 6-3 the last time the Blues used the wristbands in the pregame. There is no correlation between the two, but we fans are a superstitious lot.
Another plus to that game will be fans receiving Jaden Schwartz rally towels. I’m sure it was just coincidental, but the timing of a Schwartz towel could not be better given he just scored a hat-trick and had four goals the last two games overall.
On another note, the Blues are at least happy with the amount of rest they got. There was enough time between Game 6 of Round 1 and Game 1 of Round 2 for them to heal but not get rusty.
“It’s honestly been the perfect amount,” forward Brayden Schenn said in the Post-Dispatch. “You get a couple days to heal the body, a couple days to practice. Those are other teams when they’ve been sitting off for a week and a half, two weeks, whatever it is and they’re doing intersquad games, I don’t know if you want to be put in that situation. You want to close out a series as quick as possible, it’s always nice getting rest and letting the body heal.”
Game Time Quandary
So, the Blues know what time their first game is at, but so far, none past that. They at least do know the days.
The league is going to keep this series on an every other day schedule. Game 2 will be Saturday, April 27. After that it’s April 29, May 1, May 3, May 5 and May 7.
Why we do not know the times is confusing though. But, this is the NHL so NHL on, I guess.
