When the Blues were healthy and in the midst of a five-game losing streak, Ken Hitchcock mentioned that the team's lineup was not the "worker-bee" one that put up 109 points in the 2011-12 regular season.
Now with Andy McDonald (knee), Alex Steen (shoulder) and Vladimir Tarasenko (concussion) injured, the worker bees have arrived. And the head coach says they'll be looking for honey.
"This is a heavier team that we're putting out there, but we're familiar with this ground," Hitchcock said. I don't see us missing a beat. We'll just keep playing."
