Blues think they're ready for another shot at Stanley Cup champion Kings

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues are getting yet another shot at the Los Angeles Kings.

Los Angeles beat the Blues during its run to the Stanley Cup championship last season and swept St. Louis this season.

Coach Ken Hitchcock likes his team's chances. The Blues have won 12 of their last 15 with a mix of stingy goaltending, tight checking and just enough offence.

St. Louis won its last six at home to claim the fourth seed in the Western Conference. The Kings were the first No. 8 seed to win the Cup last year and begin their bid for a repeat as a well-respected No. 5. Game 1 is Tuesday night in St. Louis.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
