When the Blues lost that lead in Game 4 it was over. This and the next game are just formalities.
Yep, Kings have won 3 in a row and by the time next game rolls around Blues are going to be wondering what it takes to beat the Kings.
Kings are rolling and when the SC champ gets it in gear they're harder to stop. Kings have been in these situations before, Blues don't match experience wise.
Strong argument could be made that Doughty is becoming/is one of the premier hockey players in the world. If god was strapping on a jersey he'd be playing like Doughty did in this game. Absolutely unreal composure, smarts, consistent decisions, execution. Always respected his game but he just keeps getting better. Kid will be a legend. The entire Blues gameplan in this series is wearing down Doughty. It just doesn't happen.

Blues deserve to be golfing already. They've been valiant, don't get me wrong, but they haven't really generated much of anything in the series. Quick has been off his game or this would be done already.
To add to that Blues have had ample luck on their side. For instance two tying goals in the series with seconds left.
Pittsburgh's had Crosby *and* Malkin and has one Cup to show for it in like 6 seasons and they may be on the brink of an epic choke job against the Islanders. Or at the very least, that series has no business being that competitive.
This is a good point. They have 2 of the top 5 players in the game and Shero has put together some pretty impressive lineups and yet there's such parity that there's no guarantee of even getting to the conference finals with this lineup.
canucks deserve a do-over i guess, one with fair rules and refs picked by the Canucks.
It's a "systemic" problem in Vancouver, they're self indulgent whiners, Organization, Media and onward, who feel like their entitled to greatest and "Everyone" is holding it back or against them.
If you KEEP failing and you KEEP suggesting it's the "universe" out to get you, then you lack PERSPECTIVE and NEED to take a look in the mirror.
Edit: This is just like that "old" guy you might work with in a wearhouse, who says he "doesn't work Hard, he works Smart", and then acts surprised when he's Continually passed over for any kind of promotion, as if they "world" is against him.
