This was an extremely tight series from the beginning. In Game 1, Pierre Turgeon scored just 49 seconds into the game for the 5th-seeded ’99-’00 Blues. Then, early in the second, Brenden Morrow tied the game for the 8th-seeded ’13-’14 Blues. Then, defenseman Chris Pronger scored the eventual game-winner just 34 seconds into the third period as the ’99-’00 Blues won 2-1. The ’13-’14 Blues held a 2-1 lead after the first period of Game 2 and they took that lead into the third period. The ’99-’00 Blues scored twice in a span of seven minutes to tie the game and then take the lead with eight plus minutes left. Ryan Reaves, of all people, tied the game for the ’13-’14 Blues with about a minute and a half minute in regulation. Then, Reaves won it in overtime to tie the series almost five minutes into overtime for the 8th seed. Game 3 would also be 3-3 at the end of regulation as Pavol Demitra scored with just two seconds left in the third for the ’99-’00 Blues as they pulled their goalie for an extra attacker. The ’13-’14 Blues won it in overtime for the second straight time as Jaden Schwartz played the role of hero four and a half minutes into overtime.

In Game 4, Stephane Richer opened the scoring as he gave the ’99-’00 Blues a 1-0 lead 11 plus minutes into the game and then Turgeon scored five minutes later to take a 2-0 lead. Goaltender Roman Turek would pitch a 24-save shutout for the ’99-’00 Blues as they tied the series up at two all with a 2-0 win. In Game 5, it was Ryan Miller‘s turn for a shutout as he stopped all 30 shots against as the ’13-’14 Blues blew out (lol) the 5th seed 6-0. Schwartz netted a hat trick and added an assist as he lead the ’13-’14 Blues to the win while David Backes and defenseman Roman Polak both pitched in with multi-point games. Now facing elimination, the reigning representatives, the ’99-’00 Blues, scored first in Game 6 thanks to a Demitra goal 14 and a half minutes into the game. Then, in the second period, Schwartz scored less then two minutes into the period to tie the game for the ’13-’14 Blues. He then gave the ’13-’14 Blues a 2-1 lead about five and a half minutes later. Chris Stewart scored halfway through the second to give the ’13-’14 Blues a 3-1 lead and that would turn out to be the game-winner as they finished off the series with a 3-2 win. So, there will be a new Blues representative in the Ultimate NHL Playoff with the ’99-’00 Blues’ elimination.
