Blues Finally Smile

Are things finally turning around for the Blues?

Nothing against their two game winning streak, but it’s really too soon to say. But things finally seem to be clicking for St. Louis, in a way I don’t think we’ve seen since the first half of last season. This is the first time in a long time when the news around the Blues isn’t swirling around injuries.

For instance, B.J. Crombeen, a waiver pick-up for the Blues, had a hat trick against the Predators last night. That’s pretty nice.

Goalie Manny Legace has been in net for both wins in the Blues two-game streak, and while he’s hardly been stellar,he’s been just good enough. This gives Legace some confidence and avoids any kind of goalie controversy with “backup” Chris Mason.

A tiny, sad little rainstorm seems to follow the Blues around, right over their heads. It’s nice to see some good things happening for the team.

Also, there’s a weird story out of Minnesota, with Tobin Wright, an agent, getting banned from the Xcel Energy Center, allegedly for refusing to testify against Willie Mitchell, who is still trying to get lockout money from the Wild. Michael Russo has the whole, sorted story.
