MTL is playing well and it’s the first game back from a road trip. St. Louis has the team playing well without thinking about it. Talked about goaltending. Doesn’t see Mike Smith playing another game in EDM. Talked about the Predators. Can’t see Poile try to rebuild. His patience has been remarkable over the years.
