The 2022-23 regular-season schedule for the St. Louis Blues was released on July 6.  It gave fans a look at who the Blues will face in their quest for their 2nd Stanley Cup title.

The home schedule features many prominent interactions.  The Blues are up to 9 Saturday home games, have a 7-game homestand from Jan. 10-24 and 14 sets of back-to-back games.

Other than the Nashville matchups, there aren’t a ton of rivalry matchups in the first month. The end of the season is a little more interesting with those games against Minnesota, Boston and Dallas, but we’ll see if there are playoff implications up until the end or if St. Louis has it all wrapped up by then.
