Ride the Blues' Streak

How do you take the sting out of the Cardinals' recent loss to those annoying beard-riddled Bostonians? Try some hockey; it's the best salve, and no one on the ice looks like a tatted-up Amish jock. Tonight at 7 p.m. at the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-622-2551 or www.stlblues.com), the St. Louis Blues take on their perpetual nemesis, the Colorado Avalanche. You can forget the disheartening collapse that was the 2013 World Series by focusing on our Blues instead, who've been skating well and scoring victories on their way to what could prove to be a serious Stanley Cup bid. Tickets for tonight's game are $34.20 to $317, and if the high end of that tier seems a bit excessive, remember: Fans at the World Series at Busch coughed up clams north of $400 just for the privilege of standing all game long. Here, you sit regally, you puck-spotting emperor you.
