  • Kings (suck) vs. Blues (suck) - NHL GDT

    A recent scoring slump has the St. Louis Blues in danger of falling out of playoff contention in the Western Conference.

    The Blues look to avoid matching a season high with their seventh straight loss when they host the lowly Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

    St. Louis (28-27-10) lost 2-0 at home against San Jose on Saturday to fall to 0-5-1 in its last six games following a 4-0-1 stretch. It was the second time in four games an opponent shut out the Blues, who have been outscored 16-4 during their current slide.

    They now have the second-fewest points in the West, ahead of only Los Angeles (26-36-5), and are eight points out of the final playoff spot.

    “We can lose games and we can lose games where we feel like the effort wasn’t strong enough, we can lose games where I put Mayers on the power play and we can lose games where I put Perron in the press box” said St. Louis coach Andy Murray, whose team went 0-5-2 from Jan. 11-24. “We know our opponents are very good, but (Saturday) wasn’t satisfactory, that’s for sure.”

    St. Louis has missed the playoffs each of the last two seasons after making it 25 straight times.

    Saturday’s loss came the same day Blues goal-scoring leader Brad Boyes signed a four-year, $16 million contract. Though the 25-year-old forward is among the NHL leaders with 32 goals, he’s been held without a point in his last six contests.

    “I was definitely contributing earlier in the season,” said Boyes, who has just three goals and two assists in his last 17 games. “I’m here to score goals and I’ve got to score goals. Guys are blocking shots, guys are making saves. I’ve got to score goals.”

    Boyes hasn’t registered a point in three games against the Kings this season.

    Manny Legace made 32 saves against San Jose in his sixth straight loss. Despite little offensive help, Legace has managed to hold his own during the losing streak, allowing more than two goals twice over that span.

    He allowed four goals as St. Louis lost 5-1 at Los Angeles on Feb. 21 to snap a five-game winning streak over the Kings and start the Blues on their current slide. The All-Star, though, is 10-2-0 with a tie and a 2.76 goals-against average against the Kings.

    St. Louis has won two of the three meetings with Los Angeles this season and three in a row at home overall versus the Kings.

    Los Angeles, nine points back of St. Louis, tries to avoid a fifth straight loss after falling 2-1 in overtime at Minnesota on Sunday.

    Michael Cammalleri had a goal for his 200th career point and Erik Ersberg made 33 saves in his first NHL start for the Kings, who have lost five in a row on the road.

    Ersberg, the sixth goalie to start for the Kings in 2007-08, could earn another start Tuesday as Jason LaBarbera remains day-to-day with a groin injury.

    “It’s a little bitter when you end up losing the game, but we got one point and I’m happy with my performance,” said Ersberg, who’s stopped 51 of the 54 shots he’s faced in two games.

    Cammalleri, who has a goal and four assists against St. Louis this season, has three goals and three assists in his last four contests overall.

              "He's a good kid, but he has to realize that Twix are simply better than Butterfingers....and it's much easier to teach him that now than later.

              Even the vets have been saying that this kid prefers Butterfingers. When they're bringing it to your attention, then you know it's an issue."

                  At this point, why win?

                  Get a top fiver, shed some dead weight in the offseason, and get excited for next year.

                    This is the type of game the Blues will show up for and get some bounces.

                    In fact, they'll get so many bounces, Jamal Mayers will net 2 goals, Tkachuk one, Boyes one, and Erik Johnson will have a PP goal.

                    Final score: Blues 5, Kings 3.

                      Mayers has to make some noise. His mugshot is on the ticket tonight.

                        I just hope that the Blues do not play any youngsters because according to JD, "You don't learn just by playing".

                        Also any goal scorer that waves his hands should be benched for the rest of the season because it's not about hockey, it's about being a good person.
                        From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

                        For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


                        I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

                        The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

                          i guess the Blues and their management figure they won't have the playoffs to panic and choke, so they might as well do it now.
