Blues Fans May Be In Panic Mode, But Not the Team

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The final horn hadn’t yet sounded Wednesday on the Blues’ 4-0 loss to Chicago, and many panicking fans were sounding off with predictions about what will prevent the club from winning its first Stanley Cup this season.

The defeat was the Blues’ first in regulation in their last 10 games, but after legitimate fretting this season over the inability to beat the three California teams, an outcry that they can’t beat the NHL’s top squads continued after a loss to the defending champions.

“Well, we’re 3-1 against Chicago this year,” defenseman Alex Pietrangelo countered. “People can say what they want but we’ve outplayed them when we’ve played them. They outplayed us last game. It’s going to happen. We believe in what we have in this room. We’ve been playing some really good hockey all year. A loss is a loss. Unfortunately it came against them and the way it happened. We’re moving on.”
