The Blues are starting round two on the road. Will they get some quick licks in on Dallas?

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Round one was fun, wasn't it? A little trying, perhaps, a little stressful, but the Blues won.

It's not round one anymore. The talking heads are picking the Blues to win this series. Fans are feeling confident, but remember - this is round two. The Stars aren't the Blackhawks. That could mean a tougher series, that could mean a quicker series.

Who really knows?

Tonight the Blues start a playoff series on the road for the first time since 2009, against the best team in the Western Conference. What does Ken Hitchcock have to say on the situation?

"We need to win a game," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We need to hold home ice and we need to win a game at some period of time in Dallas. Might as well get started here on Friday and see what we can do. I'm sure both teams will be making some significant adjustments for the Sunday game, but you've got two teams that are pretty focused and pretty energized. Should make for some great hockey."

Can't argue with that. This is your Game Day Thread. Comment like the STL line racked up points last series.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
