    St. Louis, MO - Tuesday, February 4, 2020 - 8:00 PM EST







    This won't be cute episode of Blues Clues!


    However, the Carolina Hurricanes (30-19-3) better have a clue - and be ready to play full 60 (more if necessary) - when they enter the Gateway to the West in a match against the defending Stanley Cup champs St. Louis Blues (31-14-8).  This should be one of the toughest games to date for the visiting Canes.  In a season full of ups and downs, Carolina will need to be top-notch if they want to skate away with two points


    Tuesday night's tilt at Enterprise Center will reunite both teams with some old pals.  The Canes will get to see Justin Faulk once more, and Joel Edmundson will return to familiar stomping grounds for another skate.  Carolina and St. Louis have played each other relatively even in recent years.  Both clubs split their two meetings last season; Blues winning 4-1 in St. Louis on November 6, 2018 followed by the Canes returning the honors 5-2 in Raleigh on March 1, 2019.


    While the Canes have been inconsistent as of late, a win in the defending champs' barn would serve up a feel-good vibe and possibly provide a boost going forward.  Beating teams like the Blues, Caps, and Lightning are litmus tests the Canes must pass if they ever want to be considered among the leagues "big boys".


    St. Louis is coming off a 5-2 loss at Winnipeg on Saturday night.  The Canes survived a game served on a ref's platter; a 4-3 SO win in Raleigh over Vancouver.


    My never-ending soap-box rant:

    Stop the penalties!  If you want to make sure this game is over early (and not in our favor), go ahead and put this team on the PP.  You've been warned!


    Notable outs/LTIR:

    Dougie Hamilton (Car)
    Vladimir Tarasenko (STL)
