By now, you probably already know the St. Louis Blues took a 2-0 series lead in last year's first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs vs. the Los Angeles Kings, then dropped the next four games to be eliminated.

But the comparisons from the Blues' first round in 2013 is freakishly similar to their first round this season against the Blackhawks.

Check this out:

2013 Round 1 Blues vs. Kings (defending Stanley Cup champions)
Game 1: Alex Steen scored game-winning goal in OT.
Game 2: Barret Jackman scored game-winning goal.
Game 3: Blues outshot Kings by nine, got shut out.
Game 4: Blues blew 3-2 lead in third period, lost 4-3.
Game 5: Alex Pietrangelo scored game-tying goal (his first of the playoffs, assisted by Jaden Schwartz), Blues lost 3-2 in OT.
Game 6: Blues lost 2-1, eliminated from playoffs.
