Blues Finally Arrive Home

from Chris Pinkett of Blue Note Insider at the Blues website,

The team was supposed to take off from Vancouver at noon (yesterday) St. Louis time, but were delayed when the airline needed to wait for a replacement part to arrive. Just over 15 hours later, the Blues took off for St. Louis, where they landed at approximately 6:30 a.m. this morning.

Here’s the rub: the Blues host the San Jose Sharks tonight at 7 p.m. and then will fly to Denver after the game, where they’ll face the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow night at Pepsi Center.

Needless to say, the Blues deviated from their gameday routine and didn’t hold a morning skate at Scottrade Center today. They will play tonight’s game as scheduled at 7 p.m.

As the hours in the airport dragged on, those that were grounded took to Twitter to keep themselves entertained. Below are some of the tweets that were sent while waiting to board their delayed flight home.
