Rival territory: St. Louis Game Time (Remember the blog-jumping last night? This is a fun blog to do it at.)

First of all, I would like to say how awesome you guys were with the blog-jumping to SCoC last night. Only a couple people voiced trouble with it, and their sole reason was that their computers and phones couldn't handle the overload of comments. It was also a good warmup for the playoffs, as we sometimes have road trips to the blogs of our opponents.

On to tonight. After a great win against Nashville, the Canucks find themselves in a back-to-back situation as they visit St. Louis. The Blues are expected to lock up another playoff spot this year, and could easily face us in the 1st round of the playoffs. Therefore, expect this to be a preview. On the note of clinching playoff spots, all we need now is 3 points earned by Vancouver and/or lost by both Columbus and Dallas. (We play in Dallas on Thursday, so I'll leave the clinching stats until then.)

Time to get this done. Coconuts go!

Tonight's gamethread title comes from an awesome Europe song:
