It's tough to pick against the Los Angeles Kings this time of year, considering the run they went on last posteason and the fact that they're actually a higher seed this time around. Plus their roster is very similar to the one that took home the Stanley Cup in 2012, and their first round opponent is St. Louis -- a team they thoroughly dominated in the playoffs last year. In all, LA is 10-1 against the Blues since the start of the 2011-12 campaign.
