The Blues are bruised to say the least. I don't even want to name all the players that re injured because I'm sure I'd forget one. Fine: Paajarvi, Gunnarsson, Allen, Bouwmeester, Ott, Steen, and Schwartz. I think that's it. We're only missing seven players! Great.
However, the (23-18-3) Canadiens are missing a key to their success; Carey Price (lower-body injury). Do you get the title now? The Habs are also missing Tom Gilbert due to a lower-body injury.
The (25-15-7) Blues have not been hot as of late. They won their first game of the new year this week—breaking a five game losing steak
