Plane troubles delay Blues' travels, faves vs. Sharks

Feb 19, 2013 |
The St. Louis Blues won’t have much downtime before playing the San Jose Sharks at home Tuesday.

The team was grounded in Vancouver following a 4-3 shootout victory over the Canucks Sunday due to problems with their team plane and arrived back home early Tuesday morning after a 15-hour delay. The Blues stayed overnight Sunday and were scheduled to be back in St. Louis around 4 p.m. Monday but didn’t leave Vancouver until 1:15 a.m. Tuesday morning.

St. Louis has won three straight games and owns a 3-3-0-1 record at home this season. Following Tuesday’s game, the Blues are back on the road to face Colorado Wednesday.

Oddsmakers opened St. Louis as a -163 home favorite but it has since been bet down to -122. The total is set at 5.5 goals.
