I am a doubting Thomas. I will believe it when I see it.

Cracknell - Porter - Reaves can bang (and still be efficient) because they're all pretty good skaters.

The best skater on our 4th line is... White?

Plekanec was always told to focus on his defensive duties in the POs. I'm not worried in the least about him.

Love that Crackhead dude or whatever his name is. They bring so much energy.

I know you aren't going to believe it, but our fourth line and theirs have similar defensive roles. They are certainly faster (helping them hit a ton, and actually get the puck that way) and tougher, but I'm pretty confident that's the top of bottom line direction we are heading in.

Reaves is definitely a better hockey player than I thought.

That's definitely the right direction to head in.

Regehr eating the back of a skate right on the nose. Ouch! Don't think there's a cut, or a serious one.

Blackhawk fans are probably the worst of the original 6 fanbases.

I'm so afraid we're going to get the same kind of boring game with the Sens. Wild play a similar game with a sleeper hold on the Hawks. That's why I hope you optimists are right and our 4th line will bring a spark to our game.

St-Louis will be dead tired by Game 3-4 if they keep that pace.

Kings are so lucky it's still 1-0 ... Blues are missing so many chances

They're not lucky, their Conn Smythe winner of last year came up to play.

Yep...I said he moved way too much....but he's surely moving well too much...

But Blues are indeed missing a whole lot of opportunities. Just now, they did again. What a great showing by St.Louis. Not sure we've seen anything like that so far. And yet...it's still 1-0. How depressing could it be if the Kings score 1 soon....

Very humbling game to watch. The East is so much weaker. Only the Pens could survive such an assault.

Strongly doubt the Blues can keep this very high pace.

I beg to differ the habs can be faster than most western teams.

Konopka almost pulled a MAB.

Just tackled Toews like a football player on Harding.
