A while back, I wrote about the Blues not being able to handle adversity. The team fell apart after a bad call against the team in Detroit. It brought back thoughts of the implosion against the Kings in the playoffs last year.

Here we are starting the final third of this shortened season and the team is lamenting a couple of missed calls after they played the same kind of game against the Kings they've been playing for the better part of the second third of the season. That is to say: mediocre, inconsistent yet frustratingly predictable hockey where they aren't making their own luck.
So let us explore the questions of coaching and management. Does Hitchcock have anything left to teach or new ways to teach his message? Or has the message gone stale? Has the time come for Armstrong to try his hand to change this team's chemistry?
