Letang will sit out game 4.

In more amusing news:

The Stanley Cup Playoffs bring out the rivalries in many cities. Sometimes those rivalries extend to off the ice. Sometimes they involve zoos and elephant poop.

OK, maybe they don't involve elephant poop all the time, but for the Dallas Stars-St. Louis Blues series, there’s definitely some of that involved.

The respective zoos of St. Louis and Dallas agreed to a friendly wager on Twitter last week where the loser’s vice president would have to travel to the winner’s zoo, don a jersey and hat of the victorious team and shovel 250 pounds (!) of elephant poop.

Steen, Backes score twice as Blues rout Stars

This time, the St. Louis Blues knew what to do with a two-goal lead. Go for more, more, more.

Alexander Steen and David Backes had two goals apiece, and the defense put the clamps on the Dallas Stars in a 6-1 victory that put the Blues up 2-1 in the second-round series Tuesday.

Cody Eakin scores in OT as Stars beat Blues to tie series

In short order, the Dallas Stars went from embarrassed to triumphant.

My team was embarrassed early. I knew they should have kept Talbot and let the chips fall where they may with Lundqvist.

Not really following much after that but I'm hoping the Blues take it.
I don't think the horses can read the toteboard.

What if you can't grow a beard?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
