    Ryan O'Reilly fails to score in the shootout and the Canucks will play the defending Cup champions in Round One.

    Lifetime, Vancouver is 3-for-3 versus St. Louis in the playoffs.

    Either team was going to be tough. The Blues are a "heavier" team. I just hope we can outskate them, and Marky brings his "A" game.

    Don't mind this matchup at all. Think we actually have a shot of winning this round.

    Wild and Blues in the same post-season? What is this? 2003?

    You have to beat the best to be the best. The young guys are going to be ready to prove they can take on the defending champs, and it should make for a decent series. The penalty parade has to come to an end, and hopefully Markstrom can round into form, but it'll be a tough series to win no matter if it was the Blues or Dallas. Regardless, we should all be excited to be able to watch this group of players compete in the playoffs again. It's been a long time coming, and I'm absolutely ready for it!

    Remember the flu wiped out their entire team and the Blues looked lethargic and dead by game 7? I still remember that footage of Doug Weight looking like he was about to puke at the bench.

    I'm just going to cling to what Drancer was alluding to with the Blues heart's not really being in it.

    was it not the same playoffs we beat St Louis and then lost to Minny

    THAT St Louis series was insanity, we beat Al Maccinnis into submission, what an awesome series

    Given the current state of the world, it would be unconscionable for me to want that again, though

    I was really pissed off at first....but i thought about it...this really is a WIN-WIN for the Canucks

    We've got this young core....they showed up vs the Wild and won a series. That will go a long ways to helping them develop.
    Now they're going up against the Blues... The reigning champs.... if you lose to the Blues...its like..okay, they get four more games of experience against the best... no shame in losing to the champs.
    If they win, then thats all for the better.
    Imagine going in and getting swept by Dallas, that might actually hurt their confidence ... i guess for the long-haul, its best we take on the blues.

    2011 Dallas loses last game and Canucks play the defending Stanley cup Champions. Samething happens today, Dallas loses and Canucks play the defending Stanley Cup Champions.
