Does second-round opponent St. Louis have an argument for best defense corps in the NHL?

Does second-round opponent St. Louis have an argument for best defense corps in the NHL?

ST. LOUIS -- During the first round of the playoffs, the Stars talked up Nashville's defense as the best in the league. While the reasoning was sound -- four top-end two-way defensemen that caused havoc in the offensive zone -- might Dallas' second-round opponent have a better case?The Blues defense lacks the high-end talent that the Predators possess but make up for it with depth instead. St. Louis and Dallas are the only two teams in the league with three defensemen who scored at least 10 goals during the regular season.Alex Pietrangelo (13), Vince Dunn (12) and Colton Parayko (10) did so...

Blues fans from Illinois and Missouri can’t buy tickets to game three against the Dallas Stars

The Stars aren’t the first NHL team to pull this. If you were planning on taking a quick trip to Dallas, Texas to support your St. Louis Blues in the playoffs, you may want someone with a Texas billing address to buy your tickets. Why? People outside of the Dallas Stars viewing area are being blocked from purchasing tickets to the game. The Stars aren’t the first NHL team to do this. The Tampa Bay Lightning, Nashville Predators, Vegas Golden Knights, Boston Bruins, and other teams have done regionally-specific ticket purchasing in the past. Even the Blues, who couldn’t block...

Lineup Changes For Stars As They Open Second Round Versus Blues

A little bang-up on the backend has forced head coach Jim Montgomery to make a few tweaks to his blueline tonight, and Mattias Janmark draws back in after suffering a lower-body injury in round one. A lot has been written about how the St. Louis Blues appear to be the team they were meant to be all season long before injuries derailed things. They were the hottest team in the West after the All-Star break at the end of January, accumulating a 23-6-4 record in that time. A lot of credit can be laid at the feet of Jordan Binnington, the rookie netminder for the Blues. His incredible play...

Here are some highlights: Who was your MVP of the Nashville series for the Stars?DeFranks: Ben Bishop gets my vote. He stopped 206 of 218 shots on goal, an unreal .945 save percentage.

Can The Top Line Shine in Round 2?

Against the Predators, the Stars’ biggest guns brought their biggest games. From series-defining hits and scintillating moments of skill to overtime heroics and everything in between, Seguin, Radulov, and Benn set the tone. Now they need to do it again against the Blues. It feels good to see the Dallas Stars get a win, doesn’t it? It feels even better to get that win. In Round 1, the Dallas Stars proved equal to the task of unseating a Nashville Predators squad that had, at one point, been considered amongst the NHL’s strongest contenders. Six games later, the Predators are heading...
