As I left my house to drive in to work today, I searched through the music on my iPod, trying to find the perfect song to play on this bright, surprisingly-warm-for-a-January-morning-in-St.-Louis day.

I scrolled through hundreds of artists (most of them of the country variety), but stopped on a song that caught my eye: Brookroyal's "Bleed Blue." (Listen on YouTube)

That song was the theme for the Blues' postseason last year, and listening to it reminded me that the Blues will begin the season tonight the same way they finished the last one: as the NHL's Central Division Champions.

And that got me thinking a little bit: if last year brought a division title, how much further can this season's team go?

We had originally intended to provide scoring and stats from the second (and final) scrimmage of Training Camp tonight. But after two periods and a 1-1 tie between Team Blue and Team White, several players switched teams so Head Coach Ken Hitchcock could get a good look at the power-play and penalty-kill units.

As a result, our scoring resembled nothing close to official, and there was really no scientific way to bring you team stats or a final score. So we decided the best way to cover Thursday's scrimmage was to provide you with some notes worth mentioning.

It's officially hockey season.

The Blues opened Training Camp at 11 a.m. on Sunday at Scottrade Center, and fans turned out by the thousands (yes, literally) to watch the team take the ice for the first time during the 2012-13 season.

More than 5,500 fans showed up for Sunday's practice, a clear sign that Blues fans are among the most passionate in the League.

"It was pretty awesome for us," forward Jamie Langenbrunner said. "You never know how people are going to react coming out of this, but we were pretty sure our fans were going to be there for us. They showed today how supportive they are. It's a special feeling for us."
