Not a lot of energy or pep for this one, since the Avs had to win last night and knocked the Blues out of the playoffs. So, enjoy the meaningless game against the Blackhawks and see if Neimi is wondergoalie or implodes.
One thing of note, though – Walt will be on KMOX at the start of the first (audio available on the official site) and with Dan Kelly during the 1st intermission to make an announcement regarding his career. These last couple games might be Big Walt’s final in the NHL. I saw Chelios’ last game last night, and whoop. But for Walt to be retiring – well, he’s done a lot and meant a lot to this franchise, and I appreciate his long time dedication to the Blues. It’s sad, but he deserves it.
Anyway, off to wallow, watch the Cards until the game comes on, and cook some dinner. Enjoy the last three fluff games of the season, people. Maybe next year.
Here’s Walter announcing his retirement – ignore the goalhorns, please.
