It's the day after Christmas and you're feeling good. You can take a deep breath and not have to worry anymore if you bought the right presents in the right size and color and in the right quantity. You need to reward yourself for proper holiday conduct with the sport of kings, you nice hockey puck, you. The St. Louis Blues and the Dallas Stars are going to oblige you tonight starting at 6:30 p.m. at Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com). The Blues have been Hibachi-hot since hiring Ken Hitchcock as coach back in early November; this could finally be their year to close in on that long-elusive Stanley Cup. Hitch won one with Dallas back in '99, so why couldn't he do it again? If they do cinch the big one a few months from now, you could say you were there with them the day right after Christmas, giving your team the festive bow-wrapped gift of your presence. Tickets are $38 to $340.
