Jay Bouwmeester's playoff drought might finally be nearing its end.
Bouwmeester has played in 750 NHL games, but has never appeared in a postseason contest. The Flames sent him to the St. Louis Blues on Monday, who are battling for a playoff spot. St. Louis is tied with the ninth place Nashville Predators in points, but the Blues have played in three less games. Still, the Blues have a tough road ahead now that Jaroslav Halak is injured and likely to miss several weeks.
