Polar opposites: Big, tough Blues face small, quick Canucks

Hockey is trending to look like the Vancouver Canucks, with smaller players and more skill, speed and offense.

That didn't stop the big, heavy St. Louis Blues from bruising their way to the Stanley Cup last season and to the top of the Western Conference when the NHL season halted in March.

When Vancouver and defending champion St. Louis meet in the first round, it will be a matchup of opposites. The winner of the series will be the team that can better dictate its preferred method of play, and the Blues have the experience in setting that tone. Game 1 is Wednesday.
