I'm not a Nostradamus, but I think Hiei wrote some good points.
For the last few years Blues have been in a "bubble". They haven't made the playoffs, but they also haven't sucked enough to get the highest draft picks á la Penguins, Blackhawks and Capitals. If and when Blues rise to be a contender again they can be proud of doing it without getting Crosbys, Ovechkins and Kanes for free.
I had to miss the game three 'cause the starting time here is 5:30 AM. I have an account at drumnj's stream so my plan was to watch it next day as all the games are archived there. When I woke up I was avoiding all the hockey news in fear of spoilers, but when I got to drumnj's archive page I nearly pissed my pants. There was already slots ready for games four and five. "That must mean that Wings lost" I thought. I almost did not watch the game at all, but still decided to as I didn't have much else to do. Wings just kept getting these leads and all the time I wondered when does the unavoidable damn Coyotes' comeback begin. So, the result was a nice surprise and I'm glad I watched the game after all.
This one I'm going to watch live, maybe catch some sleep before the game.
