Blues back on track
Tonight, when the Blues play on home ice for the first time this season, a sellout of more than 19,500 is expected at Scottrade Center. And there won't be many freebies going through the turnstiles, if any.
In fact, the club announced recently that the first three games on the home schedule — including Friday against Colorado and Oct. 20 against Minnesota — are also close to being sold out.
I'm still skeptical that this is a playoff team, but they're certainly now in the mix, and as soon as players like Erik Johnson are ready to make big-time contributions, watch out.
