Players with experience a calming influence on younger
players, keeping in perspective that being No. 1 in June is the goal

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- For a team filled with younger players, one would expect going into the locker room after Thursday's 3-1 win over Anaheim that Blues players would be experiencing a high of catapulting into first overall in the NHL.

Almost a feeling like a kid in a candy store, they wouldn't know how to react or contain their emotions.

The room wasn't subdued by any means -- there were certainly happy faces -- but it was feeling of it's great to be here, but let's not get too carried away. There's work to be done.
