St. Louis Blues: December's 5 Most Important Showdowns

The Blues' 14-8-2 start is refreshing. Sporting the top defense in the NHL, St. Louis looks like they can stay competitive all season if the team remains healthy.

Last year, the Blues were on a fast start but fizzled out and finished near the bottom of the West. 

December will be an important month for Ken Hitchcock and the Blues. The team will play seven of their 14 games against division rivals and play the hated Red Wings three of those times (once at home). 

St. Louis will also see the return of young winger David Perron. Perron has been out with a concussion from a vicious hit by San Jose's Joe Thornton in November 2010. 

If the Blues can get through December and keep up the level of play they've brought so far, Blues fans couldn't be blamed for getting excited for the playoff race this early. 

Here are the five most important games for the Blues in December.
