The Blues and the Wild are set to square off and it should be an interesting matchup as both teams have playoff demons. Both teams in this series have a combined total of zero Stanley Cups, and both seem to always come so close to the Stanley Cups finals. These two teams have their eyes locked on the cup and will try to climb over the other to hopefully bring it home.
The Blues always seem to be just on the edge of greatness. Last year they were able to push past the Blackhawks and Stars and make it to their first conference finals since 2001. Sadly, the Sharks snatched away the Blues’ chances of making it to their first Stanley cup final since 1970. With a new year come new opportunities and the Blues are coming off of a strong season, so they may just brush past the teams that they face and possibly make it back to the finals. With 25-1 odds to win it all, St Louis will try to overcome the obstacles one step at a time.
The Wild have a similar story to the Blues, but not such a long history. After coming into the league in 2001, the Wild seemed to always be so close to the playoffs but missed it two years in a row. Minnesota was finally able to make it all the way to the conference finals before being shut out by the Ducks. Over the years, they’ve had a spotty history of making and not making the postseason. Since 2012 the teams seems to always make it, but either loses in the first or second round. This year, however, the Wild seems to have a solid team and have given nothing but solid performances, and with some smart trades throughout the year, they’ve built a roster that is tough to beat. They will need to have all hands on deck and use all the weapons in their artillery if they want to add a trip to the Stanley Cup finals to their history.
The Blues and The Wild are looking to correct past postseason mistakes and push for a shot at the Cup. While the odds are not in either team’s favor, these two teams have still have a shot to keep their postseason alive.
