Blues Have Found The Winning Formula

from Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat,

“We’ve got to continue to have our players enjoy the ride, but don’t get up off the ride,” Blues President John Davidson said. “We’ve found a formula here. Now we need to stay with it.”

The Blues are learning to win the close ones. Airtight goaltending and improved defense have allowed only 13 goals in 11 games under Hitchcock.

“Most games in this league are one-goal games, maybe an empty-netter on top of it,” Davidson said. “I know we’d like to score more, and we might when the power play kicks in. But we also have to understand that this is how you’re going to win games when you’re tired, when the schedule catches up to you, when you play in the playoffs.

“This is what it’s about.”
