St. Louis Blues Playoff Details

The Blues were the first expansion team to qualify for the Stanley Cup Final. The NHL’s original post-expansion playoff format ensured that the Stanley Cup Final would be matchup between an Original Six team and an expansion team. The Blues qualified for the Stanley Cup Final in each of the three years the Final was played in this format. Unfortunately, the Blues failed to win a game in any of the three seasons, as they were overmatched against Original Six teams like the Canadiens and Bruins.

The Blues have been a regular playoff team throughout much of their history, They made the playoffs 24 years in a row between 1980 to 2004 but rarely advanced beyond the second round. During the entire playoff streak, which is one of the longest in professional sports, the Blues reached the conference final only once and never reached the Stanley Cup Final.

After missing the playoffs three years in a row for the first time in franchise history, the Blues returned to the playoffs in 2009 and became playoff regulars again starting in 2009. In 2016, the Blues beat the Chicago Blackhawks—probably their biggest rival—in the first round and won a second round series for the first time since 2001. In the Western Conference Final, the Blues faced the San Jose Sharks. The Blues struggled to score for chunks of the series, and shutout losses in Games 2 and 3 created a hole too big for the team to escape. The Sharks won the series after a 5-2 victory in Game 6.

NHL Playoff Format

The NHL is split into an Eastern Conference and a Western Conference. Both conferences are made up of two divisions. The Blues play in the Central Division of the Western Conference. The top three teams from each division automatically qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Both conferences also send two wild card teams to the playoffs. 16 teams—eight from both conferences—make the playoffs.

There are four rounds in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The winner of each round is decided by a best-of-seven series. The first two rounds of the playoffs pit division rivals against each other and give wild card teams a chance to pull off an upset.

Round 3 is the Conference Final. The winners of the Eastern Conference Final receive the Prince of Wales Trophy, and the winners of the Western Conference Final are awarded the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl.

The winners of the Eastern Conference and Western Conference Finals face each other in the Stanley Cup Final.

When do Blues playoff tickets go on sale?

How much do Blues playoff tickets cost?

You’ll most likely pay more to attend an elimination game, and ticket prices are likely to increase as the Sharks get closer to the Stanley Cup. There might also be more of a competitive market for a rivalry series in the first two rounds. If the Blues are playing the Blackhawks or another Central Division team, you might have to pay more for a ticket.
