Despite losing 3-2 in overtime to the Vancouver Canucks Thursday night at Scottrade Center, the St. Louis Blues proved to themselves and likely the rest of the NHL that they aren't going anywhere.
The Blues played every bit as good and arguably better than the Western Conference's top team, missing a chance to take over the top spot on a questionable penalty late in regulation and a miscommunication early in overtime.

St. Louis Blues fans were excited to see the first place Vancouver Canucks come to town on Thursday night.
The Canucks, who have virtually owned the Blues over the past several seasons, were in striking distance of first place in the Western Conference Standings. With a win in regulation, the Blues could have moved into a tie for first place with the powerful Canucks.
There’s a lot that can be said about the transition of the St. Louis Blues under bench boss Ken Hitchcock.
But maybe what says the most is his record since taking over in early November: 19-5-6.
Not many believed he’d be able to spin around a team battered with injuries under an unsuccessful coaching structure.
