Sundqvist ties it 1-1 for STL at 11:46 1st period

Barbashev makes it 2-1 Blues at 3:22 2nd period scramble in front of Bernier

Barbashev with his 11th, 2nd tonight, puts Blues up 3-1 over #RedWings....8:16 2nd period

RedWings trail St. Louis 3-1 after 2 periods

Vanek with his 2nd of the night, 16th this season, cuts Blues lead to 3-2 at 8:46 3rd period...Bertuzzi great job battling in front of goalie Binnington

Maroon with his 9th goal, nice little pass off Thomas' skate set him up, and Blues have a 2-goal lead again,,4-2 lead over #RedWings

On the first Vanek goal, that was a nice pass out of the zone by Hronek.

I missed the third period but it doesn’t seem like I missed much. I think Larkin is still not even close to 100% and if that’s the case why in the hell is he out there?

Couldn’t agree more, I want to see a Dylan Larkin out for season ticker asap, for precautionary reasons only obviously.

Put me in this camp. There’s nothing to play for. Why risk the player for pride.

He’s no where near 100% and he’s showing signs of frustration more often as well. Some questionable slashes and whacks behind the play, whacking his stick on the glass…. I know he’s a warrior and is going to lead by example and all that shit, but it’s time to pull the plug.

I do not get it. With 8 games left you do pull the plug on the kid. I don’t care if he is kicking and screaming to want to play. There is no way he is 100%, why risk the future?

Why risk the future, and why not improve the future!

I’ve liked what I’ve seen of Hirose.
Skates well, good coverage on the back check.

Kuffner still looks like he’s got nerves and is skating tight.

I noticed the same about Larkin. If he is not 100% shut him down. confused

Anyone know if Kuffner was at another team’s camp last fall or is this his first time with bigger, faster players?
