The Opening Drive

St. Louis Blues Center Robert Thomas

Robert joins Carey & Randy to talk about what his first thing he does whenever he gets back from a long road trip, knowing that Coach MacTavish was the last helmet-less madman & whether he would ever play that way, how he ended up with #18 and why he’s stuck with it, how different it feels when an all-start like McDavid & Draisaitl are across from you, keeping the same mindset no matter who you’re facing, if chemistry has ever been an issue with a line-mate, if team competitions naturally come up away from games, Robert’s advice to Carey on not breaking any bones during his first skating, if he’s picked up the cooking skills from his dad, why he’s confident in his cast-iron skills and his thoughts on another matchup versus the Oilers.
