You could call the St. Louis Blues the masters of the regular season. No team has proven as consisently dominant and successful as the Blues over the past half decade. They win and win and look to be the real deal, at least until the playoffs get underway. Then the Blues tend to get lost as quickly as the April showers turn into May flowers. That's led to questions as to whether there's something amiss, an element lacking in this team makes them unable to find post-season success.
On paper, it makes no sense. St. Louis is decent in goal, deep in stellar defenders and possesses a wealth of talented forwards. The Blues should be better than they are.

St. Louis Blues History
All you need to know about the bi-polar existence of the St. Louis Blues is emphasized in their 25-year streak of playoff appearances between 1980-2004. Despite that consistency, not only did the Blues fail to earn a single Stanley Cup title during this quarter-century run of success, they didn't even reach the Stanley Cup final and got as far as the conference finals just twice.
It goes against the trail the Blues originally blazed upon joining the NHL in 1967. St. Louis reached the Stanley Cup final in each of the franchise's first three seasons, something no other NHL team has done. But at the same time, the Blues were swept in each final series and since they've never been back to the big dance, and are still seeking their first Stanley Cup final victory.
