Over the past couple of days, we here at On the Forecheck have done our best to preview all elements of the St Louis Blues and how our local beloved hockey team stacks up (with one noted exception).
St Louis Blues
Yeo spoke with the media yesterday to preview this series. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him without glasses. He acknowledges that their last win over the Predators was not indicative of how this series will probably go.
The Blues broadcast team also previewed the upcoming series, including interviews with Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz.
Blues broadcaster and NHL Network contributor also spoke with 3D on 102.5 The Game this week.
Meanwhile in Nashville, the broadcast team missed covering the games so they put together some previews of their own.
For those of you who would prefer local coverage to NBCSN, Pete Weber will still be on the call.
And finally, a word from the coach.
Reasons to Watch
- This is the first time in history the Blues and the Preds have met in the playoffs, which feels unlikely but is actually true. Tune in for the novelty, if nothing else.
- Vladimir Tarasenko is really, really good. Fortunately the Predators have a few good players of their own to trot out, including Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi, who are worth the price of admission.
- Blues fans cannot mock us for our Stanley Cup win per year percentage, which is the same as the Preds despite the Preds existing for thirty fewer years. Sad, really.
It kind of feels like I woke up one day and my professional football team moved to LA. https://t.co/GFz1KgfZoO— Gnash (@Gnash00) April 25, 2017
