The Blues learned their second round fate last night. With the Avalanche’s win over the Kings in the first round, all four of the top seeds in the Western Conference adavanced which means the 4th seeded Blues will face the top seeded Red Wings in round two. Game one is expected to be on Thursday in Detroit. St. Louis and Detroit have met six times in the playoffs. The Blues have won just two of those series…..Yesterday right winger Dallas Drake practiced for the first time since his concussion against the Blackhawks one week ago. The team hopes he’ll be ready for game one.
