Hockey: St. Louis Sings the “Blues” Again

April 27, 2015

bluesThe musical “blues,” though beautiful, relate great sadness if not misery. The same, with very little redemption involved, can be said about the St. Louis Blues hockey team.

As was the case in their first 46 seasons, their 47th season (there was no 2004-2005 NHL season) ended yesterday without a Stanley Cup victory.

For the third straight season this franchise, which has gone longer sans the Stanley Cup than any other without ever winning it, is ousted in six games in the first round of the playoffs, despite having home ice advantage.

Conversely, for the second straight season the Minnesota Wild who “6’d” the Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks, who did the same to the Nashville Predators, will meet in the division final, after winning a first round series, without home ice advantage.

Last year, the Blackhawks who had home ice advantage won in a tough, albeit only 5 game series vs the Wild.

This year again “Chi” has the home advantage, will be favored and will win, say in 6 games.
