Stat Pack:
I found the "Winning % in 1-goal games" interesting, since a lot of people seem to think this will be a very low scoring series with a lot of 1-goal games. You'd think with a good goalie like Quick in net, LA would have a better record in 1-goal games...and their record when trailing after 1 period is horrible.
LA is also under .500 when they outshoot their opponent...something else that is odd when you have good goaltending.

What about after the trade with Columbus? I think that nonsense put them up a notch.

That's a good point. We're not playing against the "season average LA Kings." We're playing against the LA Kings in the second round of the playoffs.

That said, I still have faith we can solve Quick. Like I said before, if he were that good, LA would have won the President's Trophy and given up the fewest goals in the League, not squeaking into the postseason as the #8 seed.

I don't want to be a negative Nancy but I think Quick and Elliott match pretty evenly and since the Kings got Richards they've been much better. Not that he's been a scoring juggernaut, his 44 points in 74 games isn't amazing by any stretch of the imagination, but when they got him it helped catapult that team into the playoffs. The Blues need to do basically three things to beat LA: #1 stop Kopitar, #2 be more physical than the Kings for 60 minutes a night (plus OT), not for 55 minutes, not for 57 minutes, but for 60 minutes and #3 of course solve Quick. Pepper him early and often and try to jump out to an early lead. Don't let him get into a comfort zone. To that effect, I would like to see 25 sit and Schwartz play in game one.

Keep in mind too that in two of our losses to the Kings, we didn't have two of Perron, McDonald or Steen...and in the first loss, the 5-0 one, Payne was still coach and that was a completely different Blues team.

We are are 1-0-1 in the last two games vs. LA...and the OTL was a shutout for Elliott...we just lost 1-0 in the shootout.

Quick can be very good, but he also looked very vulnerable at times this season...especially against San Jose at the end of the season. We definitely have the most consistent and reliable goaltending...don't let anyone tell you different.

We also have a current shutout streak of over 130something minutes against LA.

But those are just numbers and things that happened in the past. I'm really looking forward to this series. I picked the Blues in 5...not because I think the Blues are going to dominate. I feel each game will be very close, but the Blues are the better team and will edge out LA in a couple games that could easily go either way.

Something needs to happen to jar Quick from his cloud of exaltedness. I'm not saying run him like Storr, but a goal in the first 3 or 4 minutes Saturday would do wonders for the Blues...

I think putting someones directly in front of Quick my distract him enough...you hear that Stewart, I think you may serve a purpose.

I'm not watching the game, but whatever Phoenix has done so far with regards to beating Rinne, the Blues need to do that with regards to beating Quick. 2-1 Phoenix at the moment which is 2 more goals than I thought they'd score this first game.

The Blues are 1-0-1 against the post-trade Kings with 130 minutes of shutout hockey against them. So the Blues have been very good against the post-trade Kings in terms of defense and goals allowed. Thing is the Kings have only given up 1 goal against the Blues in those two games. Even matchup based on those two games.
