Flames in St. Louis this afternoon. The Blues are a team I expect to surprise some people this year. They have three solid lines of forwards and have some of the strongest underlying numbers of any of the non-playoff clubs last year. If they can stay healthy and if Halak can get back to being even average (let alone above average), they’re a good bet to make the playoffs.
As such, this is one of the teams the Flames will battling with in the middle in the conference. They’ll need to get as many points out of them as possible
