A second attempt of a must win game in regulation. I want to see a team more focused on accurate passes and more avoiding penalties. Blues are 10th in a league on PP. More personal attention to Hoffman and Tarasenko especially during their PP.  More physical play entire 60 minutes. Talbot also should be more focused during the game, because at least 2 goals he should stop last game. 

Vegas was able to beat a Colorado team yesterday and it seems is going to play against St.Louis during the 1st round. I think we will be fine if Dubnyk will be in the net for Colorado team.

It's been a bad day. Former work mates with illnesses and death in their families. I sure wish the Wild will play in a way that reminds of the good and energetic in life.

I wish that too. Hope they will find an energy to increase the winning mode in our team as well as interest among the fans on home ice arena.

If a Colorado team will continue to lose remaining games this season then we will get a chance to get a 2nd place in our division and home ice advantage during 1st playoffs round. Why not? It is not happening very often for our team.

We need to do everything we can to keep STL out of the playoffs and Ugh Walz tonight.

Yes and Yes.  We agree.  Walz just makes my ears bleed with the pointless 'factoids' and self-recollections that nobody cares about buy him🙄

Also, please tell me I’m not alone. Whenever I hear Kyrou’s name, I hear Caillou. 

And we’re off to a banner start. I need a drink. 

LOL if you haven't I'd go check out on YouTube Caillou the grown up. more than likely NSFW though.
