I figured I'd make a thread for any Blues fans to talk as the team hopes to win Stanley Cup and bring it back to St. Louis!

Game 2 is over with and the series is tied going back to San Jose.

We had to win tonight, and boy did they deliver! Getting that goal was HUGE, but SJ took control of the play for a couple minutes there which Pavelski IIRC hit the post, but they got back to business in the second as Oshie made Demurs and Marleau just look incredibly stupid setting up Backes perfect for the one timer to make it 2-0.

Oh, we can't forget about the fights at the end. Sobotka whooped Pavelski's [inappropriate/removed], then ROMAN FREAKING POLAK. The guy is such a tank, he just absolutely DESTROYED Braun after Braun had to say something to Polak because he doesn't fight to often, but when he does, he will lay the hammer down.

I know SJ is all pissed because of Sobotka's "sucker punch" that I didn't notice in the stands, but I guess I forgot you have to have a perfectly straight nose to play? Moore just needs to man up. Hell, BJ looks like he has a broken nose everyday.

All in all, it was a great game, and I can't wait till Monday!

GO BLUES!

That had to be on top 10 plays, but it probably wasn't. They probably had NBA dunks on 7 of the 10 when the guys are 6'8 and taller, which is sooo impressive.

Game 3 tonight and I'm beyond jacked! 9 o'clock can't get here soon enough!! Boy do I hate these West coast matchups though..

Great win tonight to take the series lead, 2-1.

PP on fire going 3-3 IIRC.

Not that worried about the two late goals, but it would have been nice to get the 4-1 win. Oh well though, a W is always a good thing in the playoffs.

Hate this long layoff till Thursday..

Yeah they looked strong last night, as Panger said it seems like they got a bit of their swagger back. Something thats been missing the last few weeks of the regular season. Though, the way the Kings are lookin, I'm kinda glad they lost it for a bit lol

I'm lovin the play of Berglund right now. Figures, he's probably pissed I didn't add him onto my Sig.

And I agree, definitely sucks they don't play until Thursday, but the Cards/Reds series helps a bit. If Halak is healthy thursday, who do you go with?

Yeah you could they were playing like they were before those last couple weeks. The Kings are up 3-0 against the Canucks, but Vancouver is just playing like dog [inappropriate/removed]. Quick would be a tough cookie though.

Haha that had to be it. Bergy is playing good right now. Using his big body to go to the front of the net where he needs to be. Now if Stewy could start doing that, that'd be nice.

I say go with Elliott. They were off today, so tomorrow we'll see how Halak is feeling. The Cards do help they are playing and playing well so hopefully it keeps up tonight!

Just wanted to remind you.. Don't. EVER. Open. The. Roman. Polak. Door!

Hitch has ruled Halak out for Game 4 Thursday so Elliott back in net. I'd let Halak rest whatever injury he has (rumored to be ankle) until he's fine, I don't want them to rush him back and he not being ready especially since we have Eliott who has been rock solid so far since being called upon.

Last night went from being one of the worst games the Blues have played this series to the most exciting finishes to a game I've ever witnessed in person! STC was absolutely rocking last night especially after the Perron goal.

Now, bring on LA! Going to be a tough series against Quick, but I have confidence in the team to beat them in a series.

Game 1 will probably be next Saturday. Can't wait!!

Best of luck, men!

Beat LA, I'm cheering for you or Nashville to win the Cup.

LA is the match-up I was most worried about. They're dangerous, being a team that plays a lot like us. With arguably better goalie play, which means a ton this time of year. I hope Hitch rides the hot hand, and doesn't go back to Halak. Elliot has been better and more consistent since October, but we continue to give Halak every chance to take the job back. I don't get it. He hasn't been bad since the start, and he's actually been quite good at times. But Elliot has played out of his mind this year, ALL year. I don't give a crap what we're paying Halak, or what his title is, or what we gave up to get him here. The bottom line is that Elliot has been the better goalie this year, and we shouldn't be punishing ourselves because of how much money is in Hala's contract. Roll the better goalie and try to win the Cup, that's THE ONLY thing that matters. Look at Washington, do you think they care if they win the Cup with Holtby? If Vancouver won with Schneider, do you think they'd care? Stop worrying about Halak's situation and ride the hot hand. Elliot is our best goalie at this point in time.

That's precisely why I chose LA over St. Louis in the predictions thread. However, given that both clubs are defensive stalwarts, this series could go either way, and I definitely think the latter has the advantage in terms of offensive depth, scoring, and physicality.

Should be a good, albeit low-scoring, series.

Careful what you wish for..... Very Happy

Either way, you got it. Here we come.

This should be a great matchup. Kings won the season series, but as we all know, that means exactly squat in the post-season.

Kings in 6....... Cool

Such a frustrating game on so many levels.

Absolutely dominated the first ten minutes and for most of the first period then Steen and Jackman both whiff trying to clear the puck and they scored. Can't forget to mention when McDonald and Crombeen couldn't get the god damn puck off the ice. Quick was great, but we made him look a lot better with out inability to get the puck off the ice. If Crombeen and McDonald just get the puck two feet off the ice, they go in and it's a 3-0 lead, changes the whole game.

After the first period, the Blues seemed to just go home. They weren't skating, weren't hitting enough, weren't getting in front of Quick to screen him to get quality scoring chances. I mean.. look how we scored the first goal. I mean hockey isn't rocket science, it's REALLY hard for goalies to see shots when they are screened, but what do we do? We take shots from the outside with NOBODY in front making it easy on Quick.

Quick is a great goalie, but he goes down so early and is nearly impossible to score on when shooting the puck on the ice. You gotta get traffic in front of him, getting him going side to side, and just plenty of pucks on net.

If we could hit the god damn net too, it would have been a W, but as anybody that has watched this team this year, we have to be leading the league in shots missing the net.

If Pie is out for the rest of the series, were screwed. I hope not, but you have to think it's the C word..
