Stanley Cup Playoffs 2013: ESPN's Pierre LeBraun Has Blues Beating Kings


With only one day until the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs officially start, experts are weighing in on who might win each series and the ultimate prize.  In a great preview of the series between the St. Louis Blues and the Los Angeles Kings, Pierre LeBraun of ESPN has made the following prediction:

I hate having to predict a winner here because neither one of these teams deserves to go home this early. But I’m going to ride home ice and the Blues’ scorching April record.
Blues in 7 (in triple overtime).

Clearly LeBraun thinks that this is going to be a close series, as do most fans of either team, but it is great to see him picking the Blues.  Let’s hope the Blues bring home the first game tomorrow night.

LET’S GO BLUES!
