ST. LOUIS (AP) Just as last spring, the St. Louis Blues have the higher seed but the unenviable task of facing the defending Stanley Cup champion in the first round of the playoffs.

For the Blues to prevail against the Chicago Blackhawks in a matchup of 100-point teams and long-time rivals with Game 1 Thursday night, coach Ken Hitchcock says they'll need standout play from goalie Ryan Miller.

St. Louis lost in six games to the Kings and Jonathan Quick last year and acquired Miller from Buffalo in hopes of making a deep run.
