Opponent's Blog - St. Louis Game Time


The Blues are kicking off their preseason schedule, whereas the Jackets are going to be the seasoned veterans by the end of the night tonight. In case you missed the news, Brandon Saad will not play tonight (after originally being in the lineup) after taking a puck to the mouth yesterday. Not good times.

There are a lot of big names getting their first action tonight for Columbus, so if you're heading down to the arena, enjoy it!
