105.9 The X
The Penguins are trying to get over the blues as they enter St. Louis Saturday night to face the Blues. *I'm lighting myself on fire for even typing that*. The Blues are the 2nd best team in the Western Conference (38-16-4, 80 points). The Blues beat Boston 5-1 last night so expect Brian Elliot in net tonight (Jake Allen played last night). Thomas Greiss is in net for the Penguins tonight. The trade deadline is a 9 days away, so #JagrWatch is slowly coming to an end. If you haven't checked it out yet, make sure you check out our Jagr Photoshop Expo. Since the Penguins play Florida tomorrow and Florida is only 9 points behind them (1 behind Boston) Florida is in Ottawa tonight.
