With the Blues' commanding 6-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes, Blues fans can be forgiven for being a little frustrated. Frustrated after a win? Well, yes. They played like we know that they can. The line made up of David Perron, Patrik Berglund, and Chris Stewart combined for nine points last night, and generally speaking the team was a lot better defensively than they have been. So where is this every single game? Why can't they just play like this all of the time?
It's frustrating, and their recent play has made some bandwagoners jump ship (ta!), and that's fine. Die hard fans are either frustrated as hell or just numb to the terrible play, because we've gone through this for so many seasons. There's a difference between apathy and giving up, but ESPN.com's Scott Burnside doesn't think we should do either.
He recently spent some time with the team on their last road trip, so he knows a lot about the inner workings of the coaching staff and the locker room. More so than we do, of course. What he's seen first hand makes him think that the Blues can still win the Stanley Cup, and he tries his damnedest to get us to believe that too.
