St. Louis looks good but I do not know how long they can ride Halak to 2-1 or 1-0 victories. They have won their last 3 games but only scored 6 goals over them. If Halak can keep it up I would say they are a threat. But I doubt Halak can hold this pace over an entire season.
Tampa Bay right now is another surprise. But they are kind of the opposite of the Blues where they are winning games by scores of 5-3 or 4-3. Eventually they are going to need some defense to be a real threat.
Also, I have tickets to the Bruins v. Habs on Thursday. I am so pumped.
