I just looked at the bracket layouts. They have it so the 1 and 2 seeded teams will face off in the next round. Why would they do that?? Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather face Dallas or Calgary than Vegas or Colorado next round (if we manage to advance). It just seems odd that you would pit the 1 seed against the 2 seed in the second round.
Hmm. I thought they were planning on re-seeding each round, which was one of the drivers behind doing the round robin for the top 4 seeds.

Assuming (1)Vegas and (2)Colorado close out their series, and hoping that the (4)Blues win theirs - if Calgary wins I believe we would face Colorado (1 vs. 6, 2 vs. 4), and if Dallas wins we would face Vegas (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3).

I think the bracket layouts simply list the matchups in order. At least on the app, they do not have leaders connecting to the next round, where they do for the rest of the bracket.

Ever since that Nuck goalie was smiling behind his mask in game 3 the Blues have been in control.
Keep smilin'.

For a while there it felt like the Blues were on the verge of being up 5-1, and now it's 4-3 Vancouver.

Thanks Obama.

The Blues weren't playing well, but Jake Allen has to be better there.

Blues looked like the marginally better team for about 50 minutes of that game. Got a few bad bounces and the Canucks scored 3 goals in that 10 minute span where they were skating circles around the blues. Really good game overall.

The Canucks goalie made some incredible saves. Allen did not.

Back to Binner time I assume.

Last year he allowed 3 goals in 10 1/4 ish periods when the blues were in an elimination game, (gam6 and 7 vs dal, game 7 vs bos) and I’m guessing he is hungry.

Blues look like they’re still asleep.
