I would recommend flying in, staying at a hotel near airport and riding metro-link to downtown then catching a cab around. Much cheaper.

Good Luck to Kings, should be a good series.
Just another thing to add to this is it might be just as easy to stay downtown and just take metro back to airport before flight. If money is not issue I would prefer to stay at the downtown hotels then the ones by the airport.

Made me laugh...think it is so many trolls you just dont want to come onto another teams board and seems as if you are trolling. I am just a guilty as anybody when it comes to this.

I sure hope Game 1 is an early game. I am supposed to drive up to Edmonton for a lacrosse game Saturday night. I guess worse case I can PVR it and watch it when I get home from Edmonton Saturday night. I'll just have to make sure I don't look at the out of town scoreboard at Rexall.

I think we could have played better in the first series. I especially expect more from JDub and Carter.

If you would have told me, pre-playoffs, that Blues fans would be more obnoxious on the whole than Canuck fans, I would have laughed in your face.

This really is bizarro playoffs.

yess they are, they play a complete style of hockey. hit, score, fight, lead the team. i just feel that brown has a little bit more offensive upside to his game.

I haven't seen much obnoxiousness from Blues fans. I think they along with Kings fans are still busy doing cartwheels that we're both in the 2nd round.

There has been a lot of bickering on the last few pages of the main board thread. I checked in for the first time today and just had to laugh.

This is a serious where our 2nd 3rd line can either win/ lose this series. Richards Carter King Penner Stoll and company either step up... Or we don't win... This is a 2nd 3rd line series! Tell Fraser also to keep emotions in check while playing hard as possible... I have confidence.
We are the much better team. If they start scoring on PP. DS has to tighten up the PK to less aggessive allowing Greene and Mitchell to clear the front of net with Quick stepping up as well in first couple of games and cracking ankles... I hope Billy Ranford tells him this...

I'm surprised by their arrogance. I get that they're the 2nd seed and its cool an all that....but they got 1 puck passed Quick this season.

I'd be pretty nervous if the Kings were up against a team that shut them out twice.

Thursday and Sunday are the home games? Guess I'm gonna have to extend my trip to LA next week. Hopefully Sunday is an afternoon game.

Believe me, any Blues fan that watched the season series should be nervous. The Kings were the very last team I wanted to have to go through, and honestly, no one wanted to play you guys. I think the reason some seem overconfident is that significant offensive contributors didn't dress for the Blues against the Kings this season(something I wasn't previously aware of). Knowing that now, I'm definitely feeling more confident but I remain anxious because I don't have any idea if those players are going to be enough of a difference to win the series. IMO, anyone picking either team in 4 or 5 is insane.

Dunno about obnoxious, but definitely more confident... maybe to the point of arrogance. Moreso than Vancouver fans, definitely. It's not what I was expecting.

This is going to be tough, no doubt. I'll be cheering while fearing. Like any Kings fan. =P

Call me crazy, but I think Jeff Carter will score a goal in this series.

No denying that the blues fans are coming off of quit the high right now as well. Plus you look at how good McDonald has been playing both in the firts round and to finish out the year, it would make me very confident as well.

The Kings also didn't have Carter for those games. He was pretty much useless in the first round but he does provide a scoring threat on the second line and has the ability to maybe score a goal. And then Jack Johnson is addition by subtraction.

Is anyone else more worried about the games at Staples Center than the games in St. Louis?

I'm glad we have road ice advantage through out the playoffs. (Unless we play Ottawa in the finals)

It would make sense that the password isnt working seeing as the upped the presale time from 10am to 1pm.

Jeff Carter alone doesn't offset McDonald missing all 4 games combined with both Perron and Steen missing 2 games each. This will be the first time the Kings see all 3 players in the same game and that trio is capable of making this series look decidedly different than the regular season series. Carter alone couldn't possibly begin to cover what those 3 bring, however the aforementioned Blues forwards would obviously have to play well on their end of things.

What really concerns me about the Kings is their ability to sustain a sometimes dominating physical game which could potentially neutralize the Blues 5-5 efficiency. If the Kings can execute and outplay the Blues 5-5 it could really throw the Blues offtrack and force them to rely on the PP. Kings have a great PK and I don't see many PP goals coming in this series anyways for either team. To me this series looks like a classic stalemate due to the similiar styles and strengths of the teams.

Go Kings go, my buddie who is a Kings fan was on the Bruins bandwagon last year, and now this year I am on the Kings bandwagon after an early upset.

Hate St. Louis and almost every team left, and I have always had a soft spot for the Kings as they traded lots of players back and forth back in the day, ie, Dafoe, Stumpel, Murray, ect.
