St. Louis Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock spoke to the media after the game and despite his team netting their sixth straight win, he was disappointed with the team tonight.

“We didn’t play well today,” said Hitchcock. “We didn’t play well. I think a lot of the drama that goes along with the day today really affected our players… We didn’t have the focus that we’ve had and we’ll have to get it back, on this road trip. We can play a lot better, but I think with all the drama, all the Olympic stuff, I think you could see it really draining on people tonight.”

The Blues have 10 players heading to the Olympics. The final rosters were announced today.
