St. Louis Blues Moving On Up: Can They Find the Keys?

Jason Besancenez@https://twitter.com/jasonbesancenezContributor IFebruary 27, 2009

The St. Louis Blues have been dealing with adversity since before the year even started. Riddled all year long with injuries and goal tending issues, the team might not have the impressive record the division leaders have, but they have never lacked commitment to the team and their fans.

Their recent emergence in the standings has proved that playing hard through difficult situations can get them into the playoffs. There are many things that need to happen in order for this hard work to pay off, though. Here are the keys to making playoffs:

Win games in regulation, win on the road, Chris Mason stopping the puck, defense blocking shots, score more goals per game, powerplay success, strong penalty kills, play physical at all times, and most importantly, stay focused on each individual game at hand!

With St. Louis only three points out of that last playoff spot in the Western Conference, the Blues will also hope that lady luck is on their side. As the mainstream media showers us with "trade talk," the Blues are focusing on winning with the cards they have been dealt!
