Blues face San Jose Sharks in first round of Stanley Cup Playoffs


The Blues’ve picked the safer bet between the Sharks and Los Angeles Kings, not that there was much picking involved. The Sharks’re a tough team — not like there’re any creampuffs in the playoffs — but their goaltending can be exploited. The Blues went 4-0 over them this year, as opposed to the 1-2-1 that they did over the Kings. No one in their right mind felt comfortable facing Jonathan Quick. He’s the Hollywood version of Pekka Rinne.

Time to go take our Jennings Trophy and show those Sharkies what for. But a polite what for, especially if you head over to Couch Tarts or Fear the Fin. Those’re some awesome people over there.
