Blues Ready For Their Game 7

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

From worst to second just doesn't have the same ring to it.

The St. Louis Blues' bid for NHL history, to become the first team to win the Stanley Cup after being last in the League standings after playing at least 30 regular-season games (they were 31st through 37 games on Jan. 3), is being put to the test.

Don't expect them to be overwhelmed by the moment.

In many ways, the Blues might feel like they've been in this position before even though Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS) will be a unique experience for them.

"We've been through a lot," Blues forward Pat Maroon said. "Every time in the playoffs we have that adversity or another challenge, we just tell ourselves we were in a worse situation at the beginning of the year than we are now so accept it and let's go out and play our game."
