So the Sharks are playing the St. Louis Blues in the first round of the playoffs. They’re a team I’ve praised all season for playing exactly how I would like my team to play. Lots of people are citing different deficiencies about the Blues, like their lack of playoff experience, their lack of talent, and other things. Bottom line is that they beat us in all four regular season games and have two goaltenders who are hot as heck. That won’t stop me from having some hope of the Sharks getting the first round. I just won’t get my hopes too high.
