If you’re a St. Louis sports fan, you have one less team to worry about this morning. The Blues were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 4-1, Game 7 loss to Vancouver. Martin Rucinsky gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead in the first, but it was all Canucks the rest of the way. The Blues were knocked out despite owning a 3-1 series lead. It was the first time they’ve ever blown a lead that large. They lead 3-1 six previous series and had won all six times. This is the third time in franchise history that the Canucks have returned from a 3-1 deficit. Al MacInnis played, ignoring the pain of the shoulder he injured in Game 2. It was his first game since the injury. It was the Blues’ 24th consecutive trip to the playoffs.
