    The Blues are back in the playoffs!

    I was there tonight. They dominated. Or Tampa sucked. One or the other.

    Sometimes good things fall apart, so great things can fall together.

    Probably a little bit of both.

    Any team that makes it in could be dangerous. I think a Blues vs. Avalanche match-up would be intriguing, especially because of the big trade last season.

    As of this morning, there are 5 teams within two points of 7th & 8th in the Western Conference. We may not know who the Blues'll play (if they hold onto their current spot) until the last day of the season.

    We're playing the Sharks. Hopefully, we'll do better than the last time we played 'em.

    We actually did eliminate the Sharks in the playoffs the year after they beat us when we were the #1 seed but I'm still not over that

    If those bastards beat us as the 7 seed I'm gonna pissed haha
