I don't feel bad for them. (Well, maybe for some of them.)

I usually empathize with hockey fans everywhere, but I had the misfortune of living in St. Louis for several years. The core Blues fans are great, but they're a distinct minority. The vast majority are idiots, who couldn't care less if their team ever won a Cup. As long as the other team leaves the ice on stretchers, they're happy. No coincidence that, for as long as most of us can recall, the Blues never fail to goon it up like crybabies every time they fall behind. Just giving their "fans" what they want.

Ok, I didn't really know this. I honestly don't know any Blues fan nor have I ever been to St. Louis so I would have no idea.

A nice positive at the very end of a very exciting season. Abby's hard work pays off with, as they say in soccer, a brace. The Wings are playing with confidence. They are playing fast and hard. They are a dangerous #8 seed.

The Blues are a mess.

Babcock said Games 1 and 2 are Friday and Sunday in Boston.

Wings thought they'd be starting Thursday but apparently TV had other ideas.

This is very positive for the wings. The longer layoff gives more rest for our vets and most importantly more time for Hank to be ready. Now instead of him returning in round 2 we will likely see him in game 6

Even the best shootout guys have a success rate in the 40% range, which means they only score 4 goals on every 10 shots. That's with having time to plan your shot. Missing two breakaways isn't exactly shameful.

Yes I'm aware, but aside from tatar's first I didn't even think they were good attempts. And it was 3 I thought? Not sure, either way though you can't argue that we're bad in the shootout.

Let's hope so! Though, man, the Blues have no pulse. Feel sorry for their fans. Looks like this probably won't be their year, after so much promise.

Karma from the Monsanto sponsorship?

Which is odd because they seem likd they should be built for playoff hockey.

That's going to be a dynamite series. The best part? Someone's going to lose. :)

Nice avatar btw.

How many guys are hurt now? And they don't have good players to bring up like the Wings had.

Kinda sucks we don't start until Friday. I was hoping we would get a weekend home game this round but it doesn't look like we will.

Such a great way to end the season, and I'm glad they tidied everything up. The Blues are a mess.

I would have no issues adding Sproul for the playoffs…….and Mrazek for that matter. Kid is so confident. But prob best to keep him with the Griffs and see if they can go back to back.

They showed Babcock yelling and swearing a lot on the bench at one point in the game. Does anyone know why he was going so crazy?
