ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The Blues start their run for the Stanley Cup tonight at the Scottrade Center against the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings won the Cup last year... sweeping the Blues in the process.
But the note hopes to change that tune this year.

The puck drops tonight at 7pm at Scottrade and tickets are still available.
The Blues have given the fans a lot to cheer about lately.

The Note is the fourth seed in the western conference--grabbing home ice advantage for this round with an April record of 11-2.
But the Kings have had the Blues number.

The Kings have won eight straight against the Blues including all three games this year and that playoff sweep in the second round last year.
However, Brian Elliott has been hot in the goal for the Note--giving up just 16 goals in 13 games this month.

And T.J. Oshie should be back two weeks after his ankle surgery.
Game one has been critical in past playoff match ups between the Blues and the Kings.
The teams have met three times in the playoffs--each series has been a four game sweep.
