It's been a remarkable run for the Blues this season, going from a frustrating, underachieving group of talents to a cohesive unit capable of dominating the NHL. The turning point of the season, of course, came early on when team president John Davidson and GM Doug Armstrong made a coaching change, replacing organizational product Davis Payne with defensive mastermind Ken Hitchcock, who brought a Stanley Cup ring and a disciplined, suffocating style of play to town with him.
