07:16 AM ET 04.24 | The Blues are in now, courtesy a Tuesday win, but they won't know where for a bit. The oft-frustrating Blues could leverage this three-game home stand to land anywhere from the No. 4 to No. 8 seed within the Western Conference. The range means they could open the playoffs at Scottrade Center against nemesis Los Angeles or San Jose or open in Chicago against the top-seed Blackhawks, "I don't want to pick our poison right now," general manager Doug Armstrong said. "I don't want to play Chicago right now. Other than that, we're going to be ready to take on whoever has to come. Chicago is the one team that from start to finish has put a three-month distance between itself and the rest of the pack."

The Stars do... but it isn't looking very likely.

Flames get a first round pick out of the Bouwmeester trade since the Blues made the postseason.

MLSE would still like to collect royalties for lending it out, right after we hoist the Cup in 2 months.

You'll be hanging up the cups a lot sooner than that...

Hmm. Nothing like having the faith in your team.
