St. Louis Blues Morning Links: Let The Bodies Hit The Floor

Good morning Blues fans! After last night’s win, the St. Louis Blues may be testing their depth a lot earlier than any of us would have liked.

As we all know, the St. Louis Blues defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 last night. It began as a solid game and devolved into a trying event of just trying to hang on.

While Carter Hutton shined with several huge saves in the third period alone, the news was not as bright for the team. The Blues were without three players by the end of the game and their status going forward remains uncertain.

The Blues have been thin at center for quite some time and if Jori Lehtera and Kyle Brodziak miss any significant time, the team will truly be tested. For now, guys like Robby Fabbri and Alexander Steen (coupled with the potential call up of Landon Ferraro) can cope.

However, this is much earlier in the season than any of us figured the team would face adversity. The Blues dealt with enough injury last season, so you would think the fates might give us a break. Clearly not.

As well as this team started out, there is nothing to tell us they can’t keep it up when faced with a little setback. Only being a little setback will be key though.

With no substantial information available until Monday, we are all forced to wait again.  Hopefully the news will be good as it was with Jake Allen.

On the brighter side, the Salomon’s were apparently unaware they left a rather large hand hagin’. Thankfully Kevin Shattenkirk was there for the save.

If that doesn’t put a smile on your face, I’m not sure what will.
