Result: Win

Rating: 2 Units
After going toe-to-toe in a hard-hitting seven-game series against reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago, St. Louis couldn't match the speed of Dallas, which poured 42 shots on goal but also enjoyed a surprised 32-26 edge in hits. Star forward Vladimir Tarasenko, who led the Blues with 40 goals during the regular season and scored four times in the first-round series win against the Blackhawks, logged 21:04 of ice time in Game 1 and absorbed seven of those hits. However the Blues won four of five meetings - three beyond regulation - during the regular season and finished two points behind Dallas for the best record in the Western Conference. In addition the Blues are 15-5 in their last 20 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game and 11-4 in their last 15 vs. Western Conference.
