Schedule Won't Get Any Easier for St. Louis
If you read my recent rant
on the St. Louis Blues and their large list of issues, you're well aware of the problems this team is currently facing. Unfortunately, the road ahead won't be getting any easier. The rest of the month of February not only features plenty of games in a short amount of time, but it also features critical contests against some of the best teams in the West.
Remember this saying - "There are no easy games against the Western Conference".
Also, there is no such thing as an "easy two points".
The Blues have nine more games before the month of February comes to a close. As I write this on February 8th, that's nine games in 21 days. That might not sound too bad, but you must consider that the Blues have most of their time off at the end of the month. Between the 21st and the 28th, the Blues play twice while enjoying six days off. This means the brunt of the schedule will take place over the next two weeks with the Blues only having one day off between games before a back-to-back on the 19th and 20th.
As if the volume of games wasn't enough, it's not as if the Blues can circle a game on their calendar and consider it an "easy" game.
Looking ahead through the end of February, the Blues will play:
As you can see in the list above, nearly every game is a major test. The notable games - Detroit, San Jose, Vancouver and Chicago - will be telling. Which St. Louis squad will take the ice when the pressure is on?
