Series Poll---->Western Conference Quarterfinals #5 Los Angeles Kings vs. #4 St. Louis Blues
Hmmmmmmm. You'd think I would be psyched about this match up. I mean, the Kings have won 8 straight, including a sweep in last years semi finals, against the Blues, but stats and records mean squat in the playoffs. Both teams are 0-0 right now.
This should be a battle. Both teams are big, have solid goaltending (ignore some experts commentators who will go on and on about how both goalies numbers are way off last year's marks.....that's ridiculous), great young and talented D, and coaches who seem to make the right tweeks when needed. And remember the Blues have an extra chip on their shoulder. No team likes to be swept in the playoffs..............especially from the eventual STanley Cup winners.
The series starts in St. Louis on Tuesday. I will have my lucky "stuff" on and my Jamba juice ready for it all.
Silly Note:----------->I'm not use to rooting for a team with all this SC experience. This is NUTS!
