St. Louis Blues Home Opener 

When: Thu., Oct. 13, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: $52-$404
The St. Louis Blues open their 50th season tonight at 7 p.m. against the Minnesota Wild at Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; www.stlblues.com). It's been a long, strange off-season. Coach Ken Hitchcock has announced that this will be his last year behind the bench, and his replacement, Mike Yeo, will be standing next to him as assistant coach all year. Long-time Blue David Backes went to Boston; defensive stalwart Kevin Shattenkirk is still here, but may be traded away before the year's out; Vladimir Sobotka is still M.I.R. (missing in Russia); and flashy skater David Perron is back in the fold after a few years wandering the NHL. The great thing about hockey is this: Once the real season actually starts, the sense of weirdness diminishes. There's gonna be some skating, some checking, some punch-outs and some scoring, just like every year. Remaining tickets for tonight's game are $52 to $404.
