Game Day!

37 degrees and raining in St. Louis as Game Day dawns. Snow moves in late tonight.  Put hot water bottles under that blue hair!  Playoff spreadsheet has been updated here, and now includes the Magic Numbers for each contender.

We are going to head across the street to the Scottrade Center to see if we can talk our way into the morning skate, and will let you know if we succeed.  Portzline thinks security is tightened after the idiotic threat to Mason.  I'll report back either way.  

Unlikely to have time for a formal Game Preview today, so I will leave that to LTL over at Light The Lamp, assuming he is back in time.  You can check my tweets on Twitter, which I will update frequently during the day and during the game itself.  Watch Fox Sports Ohio tonight for the broadcast and see if they give some air time to the Jacket Backers and R Bar contingents that are invading St. Louis.

Edmonton put a little damper in Anaheim's run last night, which means that we now have a 4 point lead over 7th, with a game in hand.  A little more exciting each day, and tonight will come down to which Mason can withstand the intensity that will be flowing from both teams.  St. Louis goes on a long road trip after tonight, so the key is to do exactly what we did vs. Calgary -- match the intensity and play Hitch Hockey!

Go Jackets!
