Maybe just maybe Backes, Reaves will become available now.
But I'm absolutely shocked the Blues should be a team that's made for the playoffs they have the size, grit and physicality but once again goaltending has let them down. May have been the last game for Ken Hitchcock as a Blues coach.
Just goes to show you that size, grit, and physicality aren't the be-all and end-all of playoff hockey. Sometimes speed and puck movement and scoring are, you know, sort of important and stuff.
The Blues were so slow today it was almost disgraceful. And Allen was terrible. There's your series in a nutshell.
