Blues wont make it out of the 2nd round. No true difference makers in their line up and their goaltending is mediocre. Regardless. Even against the best NHL team in the league: Trailing by 1 goal, generating zero offense and essentially just treading water is not an acceptable game. Especially at home.

Halak has gotten hot in the play-offs before.

L.A. doesn't really have a 'difference maker', unless you include Carter. If that's the case, I'd easily put Stewart in the same category. The Blues are a DAMN solid team, and they'll get to at least the 3rd round if they keep playing like this, IMO.

That said theres some positives here.

With 33mins played in the game the Oilers had allowed 9shots, against a good club. Friggen impressive. Sure they only had 6shots but limiting shots against and possession against is good growth. Especially against a club so good at it.

I'm sure to hear lots of groaning here post game, Oilers are terrible, etc. but this team is making some strides on the defensive aspects of the game and it is where they have to improve. When they start doing more with that the offence will come.
Definitely agree with this. Once they learn to shut teams down and capitalize on turn overs were a playoff team IMO. Might need a few more pieces to help get us to that stage though.

Give me Kopitar, Richards, Brown and Carter over any single Blues forward come playoff time.

Doesn't matter how they play their game, because their goaltending will let them down. You can't be "unstoppable" when your goalies suck.

LA was an easy dark horse pick because Quick was superhuman all season.
