The Unexpected

The Blues have suffered key injuries to rookie Patrik Berglund (shoulder) , enforcer DJ King (shoulder), backup goaltender Chris Mason (appendix), and promising forward Lee Stempniak (knee), but continue to win. The Blues have seen their powerplay become the best in the NHL- scoring at an incredible pace. Keith Tkachuk now has 6 goals in 5 games while Paul Kariya has 9 points on the season. The best player on the team, however, maybe TJ Oshie. He may not have gaudy offensive numbers, but he looks like a veteran center with every moment he is on the ice. His high-motor has brought a spark to this team and its players. If the Blues can continue at this pace they may be a dark horse. Let us not for get the Blues have a tendency to start strong and finish weak. But for now, St. Louis is finally buzzing about Blues hockey once again.
