What to Watch
Brian Elliott and Troy Brouwer will see the Blues for the first time since their offseason departures. Elliott spent five seasons in St. Louis, collecting the 2012 Jennings Trophy and becoming the franchise's all-time leader with 25 career shutouts. In his only season, Brouwer scored 26 total goals with the Blues, including the game-winner in Game 7 of their first round playoff matchup with Chicago. Fans will also want to watch Paul Stastny, who ranks third overall with 54 points against the Flames since he entered the NHL in 2006-07.
