    Rematch of the 2016 Conference Final. No idea who I’m picking yet.

    Sharks will be the first team Binnington has faced were there a lot of tipped shots, should be an interesting series

    I have to give the edge to the Sharks. Could be a great series though.
    I think Binnington is going to get caught behind his net at some point. He leaves the net way too much.

    Well if Binnington wants to reenact Osgood to Baker I won’t complain about it

    Crazy that the Blues have never won a Cup. They've had some good teams over their history.

    They've never been able to get there.
    Although not at the Bruins record level (29), the Blues had made the playoffs 25 consecutive years at one point.

    Dead last in the NHL in early January, the St. Louis Blues looked like underachievers who cost their head coach his job and wouldn’t remain together for long.

    Then the Blues did the improbable, winning 30 of their final 45 games to become the seventh team since the expansion era began in 1967 to go from last in the league after New Year’s Day to the playoffs.

    They’ve made one Final I think. I believe they were the opponent during Bobby Orr’s famous flight.
