Anaheim’s having a surprisingly solid start to their season.
This season’s been topsy-turvy so far, which considering the last two seasons and how weird they were, shouldn’t be a shock. The Pacific Division in particular has been very unique. Did anyone expect this?
Los Angeles and Vancouver are about where people expected, but San Jose? Anaheim? With the Coyotes in the Central Division and the poor season each of those teams had last year, you could be forgiven for expecting them to be pulling up the rear. Instead the Golden Knights are barely staying afloat and the Kraken actually look like a playoff team.
The Blues will be getting captain Ryan O’Reilly back tonight to slot in on the first line next to David Perron. They may want to be more careful than usual tonight – thanks to Covid-19 and injuries, they’re up against the cap and up against the roster limit. One more injury and they’ll be short staffed.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
