Have a Hockey Jolly Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Blues and Thrashers fans – and, aw heck, everyone else. Even Detroit fans. Here’s hoping you get a white Christmas and everything you and your family wanted – unless you’re the Ovie jersey kid. Then I hope that this year someone got you a Malkin jersey and then filmed your reaction just for shits and giggles.

During this happy time, please remember Mandi Schwartz, sister of Blues 2010 first round draft pick Jaden Schwartz. Her leukemia has come back. Leave a message over at St. Louis Game Time’s get well/Christmas card. Also, please keep former St. Louis Blues star Pierre Turgeon and his family in your thoughts and prayers. His daughter was killed on Thursday in an auto accident.

Go, eat some chocolate, drink some nog, and play some NHL 11 – or if you’re lucky enough, pond hockey. And if you’re in the mood for some hockey analysis, please to read my buddy Ashe’s analysis on what’s going on with Bergfors not getting a steady spot in Atlanta’s line-up. Good stuff! Looks like we play better with the Berg.
