Last hockey season had the irritatingly familiar tang of deja vu for St. Louis Blues
fans: regular season success followed by post-season, uh, not success. But the past is past, and a new season fast approaches, which means anything is possible. Will newly arrived center Paul Stastny provide the additional scoring punch the Blues need? Can Ian Cole catch on as a top-six defender now that Roman Polak is gone (Roman, come back)? Will coach Ken Hitchcock bring back his sweet 'stache? All questions to be answered only by the passage of time. Tonight at 7 p.m. the Blues play the Carolina Hurricanes in a preseason game at Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com
). Tickets are $29 to $279.
Tue., Sept. 30, 7 p.m., 2014
