Watching Blues fans’ reactions to a terrible team is entertaining, and it’s never gotten old over the years. Watching them completely implode after a loss to Detroit, on the heels of a winning streak, when they’ve convinced themselves the teams are actually…equals?
It’s the best kind of family fun. And the St. Louis media isn’t helping. Detroit’s pasting of the January stalwarts led to an entire column of questions from Bernie Miklasz at the Post Dispatch.
The Blues are a really good team, but can they take down the proven elite?
I guess we’ll know in the playoffs, when the true answers come in. But the three consecutive losses in Detroit were alarming for the way they went down. It’s almost as if the Red Wings could do whatever the hell they wanted to do after flipping a switch, and the Blues had no answer once the Red Wings decided to assert themselves.

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings had to fight to extend their franchise record home winning streak to 17 games. Literally.
But in the process of their 3-1 victory, they showed their Central Division rival, the St. Louis Blues (29-13-6), that you have to be a little choosy as to when you fight.
The Wings (33-15-1) were not upset they trailed 1-0 late in the first period, they were...

As expected, it wasn't "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." But Wednesday's "NHL 36" took a nice behind-the-scenes look at Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom.
