With one round of playoffs completed, many prognosticators are predicting the St. Louis Blues will go all the way. Such a crazy concept considering that in early November the Blues fired head coach Davis Payne and replaced him with Ken Hitchcock. What a long strange trip it has been!
The Los Angeles Kings have certainly had the St. Louis Blues number this season. The Blues were 1-2-1 against the Kings during the regular season, with the most recent game being in Los Angeles on March 22, a 1-0 shootout win by the Kings. In that game, Jonathan Quick outplayed Brian Elliott. Every game of this series should resemble that game … but don’t give the Kings the advantage just yet. Let’s take a look at how the Blues and Kings match up for this second round playoff action.
