The St. Louis Blues are one game away from starting their summer. Based on how several skaters have played the last few games, some might have big summer plans they can't wait to start.
What's there to say? If you've been around here or if you've been a Blues fan for any period of time you should know what to expect by now. The Blues will raise your expectations and give you hope only to crush them when it matters most.
In Game 5 the Blues battled back to tie the game 1-1 after allowing an early goal to start the second period. After giving up a goal in the first minute of the third period, the team appeared to have packed it in and called it a night. Not so fast. Alex Pietrangelo tied the contest with the goalie pulled and less than a minute to go in the contest.
Bring on OT. Blues brought the pressure, but were caught on a 3-on-2 and Brian Elliott lifted his leg over Slava Voynov's shot. Game over.

Local LA news anchor Rob Fukuzaki of ABC 7 was in charge of reading highlights from the Kings' stunning Game 5 overtime victory over the St. Louis Blues. When it came time to read about how the time got to OT in the first place, Fukuzaki butchered Alex Pietrangelo's name, instead referring to him as "Alex Pad-dra-dello", or at least that's our best guess...
The blues lost 3-2 in OT to the Kings Wednesday night. Perhaps the cause?

St. Louis Blues forward Jaden Schwartz didn’t take to the overtime loss too kindly on Wednesday night. Schwartz was backchecking at the end of a shift and his man, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, scored the game winning goal because Schwartz couldn’t get back in time. Schwartz took out his frustration on the bench with his stick and the Blues now head back to Los...
If you've followed the first five games of the St. Louis Blues-Los Angeles Kings series, you're aware that several noteworthy players on the St. Louis roster have yet to show up for the playoffs. Key players, ones that are major components to the team's offense, have yet to make an impression in the postseason.
You can pin the Blues' offensive woes on plenty...

KINGS 4, BLUES 3
There's never a true consensus of how a fan base feels. No matter what day of the year, a small percentage will be content while the majority believes the sky is falling and all hope is lost.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) Robyn Regehr broke his nose and got a puck in his ear, while captain Dustin Brown merely has a jagged cut on the bridge of his unbroken nose. Other Los Angeles Kings bear their own souvenirs, and several St. Louis Blues are similarly marked up.
After five bruising games of this first-round playoff series, the Kings and Blues are pretty certain they're...
