In game that meant they were playoff-ready this year or not, the St. Louis Blues gave up five goals to the Detroit Red Wings and were unceremoniously shut-out Tuesday night at home, in front of a sold-out crowd at the Scottrade Center.

The game Tuesday night was hyped as a litmus test by the local daily and by us. Unfortunately for Blues fans, it just didn't pan out in the home team's favor.

The NHL's trade-deadline comes at 2 p.m. today. Any trades the Blues ownership had been pondering might have been magnified by last night's loss. We'll have to wait and see.
