Round one begins now.

NHL: St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

David Perron is a no. Klim Kostin’s sitting out his first playoff game. Zach Sanford is... centering the fourth line, where he’s most useful.

Despite the lack of Perron, this looks good.

The trick for the Blues tonight (and all series long) is continuing their shutdown of the Avalanche’s top line, and staying out of the penalty box. There’s no reason that those lines and pairings don’t have the self awareness needed to do exactly that.

This is your Stanley Cup Playoff gameday thread. Comment like you want to tell those oddsmakers where to shove it.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
