Could it get any worse for Minny. Backstrom gets injured during the warm up and cannot start. Josh Harding in net with a rookie back up. I am actually beginning to feel sorry for the Wild.

Good luck to the other Canadian teams.

I completely forgot about the historical significance of today's game between St. Louis and LA. It is the first ever, ever, ever, playoff game for J'Bow.

This is a Round One thread.

We need to love Boston in Round One.

The Bruins are gonna fuck the Leaves real good! Image

The LA Kings look like they don't have a clue what hit them at this point. St. Louis is just blitzing them. Quick is looking behind him on almost every other shot.

If the Blues play every game like this, then they are almost a lock for the Cup.

The refs aren't doing the Blues any favors either. LA has gotten away with a couple of OBVIOUS trips after St. Louis kept the pressure on for some long shifts and the Kings iced the puck and were totally bagged.

Yeah, and Harding has played really well. Only 5 games under his belt all year due to MS and the medications he's been on.

It would be a great story if Harding carried the Wild to the Cup. If the When the Canucks get knocked out in 5 by the Sharks, I'll be pulling for the Wild just for Harding's sake.

Blues have no finish.

Damn are they good at clogging up the shooting lanes and blocking shots though.

Hell man, let all the west teams go to OT in every game (in a 7 game series) to wear them out 8-)

Hitch deserved that. 3-on-2 with a buck-something left and the Blues dump it in...

The Kings just have way better shooters up front than the Blues.

St. Loo's blue line is pretty fucking good though.

Yup,

Blues are the best teritorial team in the league but they don't finish well and their goaltending isn't great.

Good team but not my pick for the cup.

Hopefully they take out the Kings and beat the crap out of the Hawks.
