from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Blues have defeated the Red Wings twice on coach Ken Hitchcock’s watch. These high-level victories validate this Note as an emerging power.

The Blues are using their impressive blend of size and skill to dictate play. As they get healthier, they should only get better. more
