"Chris Mason made 28 saves for his sixth shutout of the season, helping the St. Louis Blues take the sixth playoff spot in the Western Conference with a 1-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday in the regular-season finale.
"The Blues, in the playoffs for the first time in five years, will face Vancouver in the opening round.
"St. Louis enters the postseason on quite a roll, going 9-1-1 down the stretch...
"St. Louis made up a lot of ground just to climb into the playoffs. The team was at the bottom of the conference in mid-February, then finished an NHL-best 25-9-7 in the second half to earn a spot."
I hate to say it, but when you're on that kind of roll, anything can happen.
