Last year Crawford was in the middle of an impressive rookie season and this year he's godawful. I've watched enough of their games to believe the Blues playing the intense style they've gotten used to playing with home ice, I just can't picture the Hawks beating them. Obviously upsets happen in hockey so nothing is a guarantee but they just don't worry me, the Blackhawks.

Ideal (somewhat realistic) finish:

1. St. Louis
2. Vancouver
3. Phoenix
4. Detroit
5. Nashville
6. San Jose
7. Chicago
8. Whomever

Blues host Whomever, then San Jose, then Vancouver/Detroit/Nashville survivor.

Alternate:

1. Vancouver
2. St. Louis
3. Phoenix
4. Detroit
5. Nashville
6. Chicago
7. San Jose
8. Whomever

Blues play San Jose then Phoenix then whichever survivor among Vancouver/Detroit/Nashville.

I can see the alternate scenario. Doesn't even seem all that unrealistic depending on how long some of Detroit's players are out

Well, sure, if you throw out that one game then the Blackhawks haven't made them look bad. Sorry I'm not putting much stock in the 3-0 win, but I don't think the Blues were losing to anyone that night. Not an uncommon occurrence for a team to play unbelievable hockey after a coaching change.

Yes the Blues lost both games on back to backs, but Chicago was playing back to back as well both times.

I guess we'll have a better idea after Tuesday and just for the record I think the Blues are the better team right now and should win a series against them, but I think the conditions would be right for an upset against them.

Unfortunately Rattie's team just lost in the final minute to the team they're trying to beat for the title. He had two assists in the game but Tri-City scored with 52 seconds left to win 4-3 and move to within one point (and Tri-City has the tiebreaker I believe) with 6 games each to play in the regular season.
