Down by a game to Nashville in their best-of-seven NHL quarterfinals series, the Blues have to make some corrections… and fast. And Game 2, on Friday night at Scottrade Center, would be a fine time to solve some problems. I don’t think it would be wise for the Blues to leave town and head to …

Brendan Shanahan was known better for his point production than his fighting prowess, but would nonetheless take exception with a fellow colleague on occasion.
