C'mon, guys. Remember the Blues visiting last year? Habs never touched the puck. Never seen anything like it. Granted the Blues might not be able to play like that every game but I love their style. It's you skate and hit or you GTFO.
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....
This isn't new though. The Blues played the exact same way last year versus the Sharks. All over the place, laid the body out at every opportunity, incredible pace.
They were dead after beating SJ in 5, looked way more flat versus LA and got swept.
I suspect the same will happen to them if they keep it up, except maybe even more seeing how the Kings are a lot tougher than what the Sharks were last year.

This is Game 1, and things are very different in the Chicago game, and I suspect the Detroit-Ana game will resemble the Chicago one a lot more than the Blues one.
I think you'll see Toronto-Boston to be like LA-Blues.
