One statement from Ken Hitchcock after the Blues lost to the Coyotes 4-1 tonight, their 4th loss in a row.
added 11:54pm, from Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat,
“There’s no more talking now,” Backes said. “We’re at Game 82 tomorrow, let’s go out there and do what we know we have to do. Either we commit to this team game the way we have to be successful, or we’re going to be talking like this in more scrums.
“We’ve got one game tomorrow to wrap it up and then we’re playing for keeps with a clean slate in the playoffs.”
Backes was asked if the Blues’ clinching a playoff spot so early took a bit of steam from the team’s stretch run. Another question centered around sending a message Friday to the Coyotes, a potential playoff opponent.
“If there was, we didn’t send it very well,” Backes said. “I think the message was sent that they have life if they’re playing us and we need to reestablish our dominance.
